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 website.

View the Community Chest Applicant Guidance.

The closing date for completed applications is 14th February 2020. 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.

Crowdfund Cornwall

For some projects, crowdfunding can be a good way to help projects attract wider support as well as increasing the funds they receive. Cornwall Council and Crowfunder are currently working in partnership to operate a crowdfunding website to support not-for-profit organisations working with local communities in Cornwall, in relation to the Community Chest, the Council's Grow Nature Seed Fund and the Devon and Cornwall Police Resilience Fund.  Cornwall councillors can if they wish use their Community Chest funds to support projects that are being promoted on the Crowdfund Cornwall website.
