BRIZ Community Pot

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. 

This is the first time we have run a community pot. We want to learn from this process so we really welcome any feedback. Please use this feedback form to share your thoughts (you can answer anonymously)

Thanks to Bristol City Council and Quartet Community Foundation for making this project possible.
