Cornwall’s 19 community networks are the main way we connect with local communities and help them address important local issues.

The panel discusses issues affecting the community network area, agrees ways to progress them and seeks to builds working relationships between local partners.

Panel meetings are open to the public and the press.  Our public guide to community network panels explains how the meetings work and rules for reporting and filming meetings.

The panel includes local Cornwall Councillors and representatives from town and parish councils within the community network area.  The panel can invite local organisations and service providers like the police and health services to join them at their meetings.

Each Cornwall Council councillor has a small grant fund to assist projects run by voluntary and community groups in the area they represent. The grants can be used for a wide range of groups and activities, including helping vulnerable children or adults, helping young people, providing facilities for older people, supporting community facilities, local environment projects and helping projects to tackle community safety issues.

Grants range from a minimum of £100 and up to a maximum of £1,000.  Check with your local Cornwall councillor before applying to see if funds are available and whether they would support your group’s application.  You can find your councillor by entering your postcode in the My Area section of this page.

You can read the full guidelines for the scheme here.  

The closing date for completed applications is16 February 2018. Although you can make an application at any time until the closing date, it is always best to apply as soon as possible, as there is only limited funding available.
