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.
