Supporting communities to make great ideas grow

Do you have a great idea for a project or initiative that needs funding?

Cornwall Council is looking to support 
not-for-profit organisations working with 
local communities in Cornwall.

We want to inspire individuals, community groups, charities and businesses to grow local projects and enhance nature with extra funding 

Do you have a seed of an idea that could help create more space for nature within your community? Then check out our Grow Nature Seed Fund and you could be one step closer to helping nature grow. We are also encouraging applicants to branch out and make a simple application to support local tree and hedgerow planting on public land.

Plus your county councillors are supporting ‘not for profit’ organisations working to enrich and engage local communities with grants from the Community Chest Fund.

And for projects working to increase community resilience within local communities and help to support vulnerable people, Devon and Cornwall Police are supporting projects with the Community Resilience Fund.
