We loved hearing all your brilliant ideas and applications! We are so happy to announce the projects that have been funded through the first BRIZ Community pot. 

A pot of £2500 to support groups and individuals in the two Brislington wards to run community-led events, activities and initiatives.

We want to learn from this process so we really welcome any feedback.

We did an open application for locals to send in their ideas and projects to get some support from the pot.
