Cornwall Council is supporting projects and activities that will help Cornwall become carbon neutral and tackle climate change. We want to inspire and back projects that support the Council’s climate emergency response and ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030.
There are three types of funding available: The Carbon Neutral Cornwall Fund; The Town and Parish Council and Community Groups Fund, and The Forest for Cornwall Fund.

Love Bude, hate waste? Help us open ReFILL Shop. Lets reduce packaging, shop locally, ethically and buy just as much as we need.
Our Carbon Neutral Cornwall Fund provides vital funding to projects or ideas that are helping tackle climate change through reducing carbon production; the removal of carbon from the atmosphere; environmental activity that is not tree planting; or increasing community resilience.
The Forest for Cornwall Community Fund aims to support community-based projects that help to increase the canopy cover, the wildlife and environment of Cornwall.
Our Town and Parish Council and Community Fund is for local councils and communities that are developing their own local climate emergency response. We want to help local councils and community groups get started on mapping their carbon footprint or prepare to put their plans into action.
Cornwall Council is looking to support not-for-profit organisations working with local communities in Cornwall. Three types of funding are available – Cornwall Councillor Community Chest funds for community projects, Grow Nature Seed Fund for projects which help nature thrive and the Cornwall Social Inclusion Fund for Adult Social Care projects and ideas.
