Who we are

The Sirona Foundation was founded as an independent charity 2013. We are a grant awarding organisation, and have invested over £1.6 million of funds, to support local health and wellbeing community projects, help people to retain their independence and supported Sirona staff to go ‘above and beyond’ to deliver those extra special projects communities in our region.

How We Do It

We are able to award grants because of the generosity of our donors who fundraise, donate and leave legacies to the Foundation. Your support enables us to fund great ideas that will make a big difference in our communities and in the lives of people. We couldn’t do this without you.

  • Fund projects no matter how small to make a big difference to the health and wellbeing of people living in our local communities.

The Sirona Foundation funding will be transformational for Hillfields Community Garden. As we support the delivery of our regular monthly and weekly groups, recognising the huge contribution of our core volunteers. So far this year we have run 21 groups and events and had nearly 600 visitors. Support from the Foundation means grass roots organisations like ours can thrive in areas that really need support in developing nature and community connections.

Hillfields Community Garden

Great for children to meet new friends who understand how they feel. Really good space for children to meet and play and be themselves. Lovely how you introduce parents and children who are struggling. We would love to do it again, it builds great confidence.

Stammer Group

The grant from the Sirona Foundation means that The Grace Period Project can reliably supply ‘Grace bags’ containing free period products to over 60 people across North Somerset every month. With the support from the Sirona Foundation, we plan to expand our support across North Somerset to raise awareness about period poverty and reduce the stigma around periods.

The Grace Period Project

The group was relaxed and informative. It was great to have both English and Bangladeshi spoken, and really helpful to hear others experience, we are now more aware of the symptoms of a stroke.
