If you would like any earlier agendas or notes, please contact the Community Support Assistant (contact details listed on the top right of this page).

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 14 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 Crowdfunder are currrently working in partnership to operate a crowdfunding website to support not-for-profit organisations wordking with local commnunities in Cornwall, in relation to the Community Chest, the Council's Grow Nature Seed Fund and the Devon & Cornwall Police Community 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.
