The Cornwall Training and Capacity Building Partnership has been established to support Cornwall Council’s ambitious Devolution Programme to enable local communities to have greater influence and responsibility and have a greater role in the delivery of local services.

As part of the Council's work to increase the capacity of groups working at a community level in Cornwall, we are keen to open up opportunities for them to access training and development opportunities.
