South West Community Matters is a heritage project of South West Foundation continuing the Foundation's mission of investing in communities across the South West Region.


NEW!! South West Community Matters became a charity as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in August 2023. Charity Number 1204297 


South West Community Matters believes that investing in local people and local communities is the way to bring about lasting positive change, both to communties and to the individuals who live and work in those communties. 


We aim to achieve our mission through:

  • research to support the sector
  • provision of helpful development tools and information on funding
  • Support for those who provide funding


South West Community Matters has retained some of the sections and features from the South West Foundation website which you have told us that you find helpful. This includes an element of support for the sector, current and historic research reports into the sector and our funding booklet. We also have a page which contains information about the SOUTH WEST COMMUNITY FUND that we are working on with LHC / SWP (South West Procurement Alliance), providing small community grants across the South West Region. LHC bring buyers and suppliers together to build and maintain public property more efficiently and cost effectively, and to benefit the local community.
