How can I help my local community?

Volunteering opportunities

There are lots of ways you can support your community, from delivering food to working on a fruit and veg farm. Information on how you can help, stay safe, and available sources of funding is available on our volunteering page.

If your organisation or group needs financial support, take a look at our list of funding resources. A list of grants is also maintained by Cornwall Communities Foundation.

Government has also now launched a Food Charities Grant Fund, providing grants for those helping people affected by coronavirus.

Cornwall Council has donated £100,000 to the Cornwall Community Foundation's Emergency Appeal, to provide financial support to organisations across Cornwall. You can find out more about their work in the video below.

If you are operating a meal preparation and delivery service, please see our regulatory guidance.

If you are providing support to your community with food, please complete our survey.

Thank you to all of you providing support to our communities. You can see an example of the incredible activity being undertaken in this video from The Hive:
