The focus of this programme is to engage with community-based organisations across Cornwall, opening up opportunities for them to get involved in developing projects for their area.

Examples of projects that could benefit from Community Capacity funding include:

  • Feasibility studies, business plans, architects’ drawings, concept plans or other professional support to determine the concept of your project
  • Community engagement events or activities leading to the development of a wider project

Particular emphasis will be given to supporting those areas that have little or no experience of applying for and securing funding.

Community Capacity Fund is a revenue only programme.
