The High Sheriff of Somerset’s Charity, Somerset Crimebeat Trust, aims to improve the quality of life for those living in Somerset. Funded only by donations, it is administered by Somerset Community Foundation. It awards small grants of up to £1,500 to projects and charities, often run by volunteers, for the benefit of children and young people. The current High Sheriff, Mary-Clare Rodwell, intends to broaden its horizons for the good of the elderly and to be more inclusive of those living in the rural community. By supporting a wide variety of projects, we hope to divert energies away from crime and to create a more peaceful and prosperous Somerset.
