This Scheme is primarily intended to help the small, un-constituted groups who are supporting local communities through the crisis. It is also intended to help groups whose funding is impacted by the crisis. We recognise that these groups may often need a way to simply apply for small funds to support their work.

If you represent a group liked this, please apply to your Cornwall Councillor’s Community Chest fund in the first instance. They each have a fund of £2000.

To apply, simply email your Community Link Officer (CLO) with brief details of your group and the work you’re doing. Please see contact details on the map in this link, and copy in The CLO will then contact the relevant Cornwall Councillors to see if they are willing to support your project in principle and have sufficient funds in their Community Chest to do so. If it is appropriate to your work, they will also talk to you about the option to promote this as a crowdfunding project on the Crowdfund Cornwall website. Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise groups that are formally constituted should first apply to access Cornwall Community Foundation’s Emergency Fund. Cornwall Council has contributed £100,000 to the fund.  The Cornwall Community Foundation fund offers small grants of £500 - £3,000 to charities and constituted organisations in Cornwall.  This covers the additional costs of supporting people during the coronavirus crisis.
