More ‘Free’ Money being Given to Community Groups….

Dear Roy,

Cambridgeshire County Council is pleased to announce that the next deadline for Innovate & Cultivate Fund applications is 1st August 2020. One-to-one pre-application advice will be offered on 16th and 25th June (details below).
The aim of the fund is to support initiatives that strengthen our communities and reduce pressure on County Council services, thereby giving a return on investment.
Council services that are inviting applications are adult social care and children’s services.

The fund is open to voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations based in and outside of Cambridgeshire, and public sector organisations in Cambridgeshire. Please note that projects serving Peterborough residents are not eligible.
There are two funding streams: a ‘Cultivate’ fund for smaller projects that build community support networks and an ‘Innovate’ fund for bigger, bolder and more innovative initiatives.

Upcoming application deadlines.
1st August 2020 – Cultivate grants (£2,000 – £19,000) and Innovate grants (£19,001 – £50,000)
1st November 2020 – Cultivate grants only (£2,000 – £19,000) – subject to change

Pre-application advice.
We encourage organisations to talk through project ideas before submitting an application.  Bookings are now open for one-to-one telephone advice appointments on Tuesday 16th June and Thursday 25th June between 9:30am-1:30pm. These 15 minute appointments must be pre-booked and are available on a first come first served basis. Please book here.
Applications and further information about fund priorities and criteria may be found on the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation (CCF) website. CCF can answer questions about applying for the fund [email protected]
