Community building refurbishment

Community building refurbishment

Lead Organisation: The Old Bank, Camelford

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Levelling Up

SPF awarded: £93,732

Location: Camelford

The Old Bank is a local community centre in Camelford, and currently runs Community Larder sessions twice a week providing a fresh food fill up, emergency food bags, hot food and school holiday lunches. They also offer other provision to the local community including addiction support, energy and water saving advice and venue hire for local community groups.


The building is in need of refurbishment to make it fit for purpose and to deliver and support new services for the community of Camelford and neighbouring areas.  The CLUP funded project will involve damp-proofing, replacement windows, electrical rewiring, new flooring, work to the toilets and redecoration internally and externally to enhance the façade and interior of the building to accommodate and deliver the new services.


Once the project has been completed, the building will be more welcoming with a better environment and façade. The new services that will be offered include a job club, services to support young people back into work, targeted support for care leavers and young people, mental health support groups, debt advice and art groups. The Old Bank will also become a warm hub, providing hot meals and activities to families during the school holidays and is hoping become a ‘digital champion’ venue promoting digital inclusivity.
