Parish and Town Councils are encouraged to apply to the County Council’s Innovate & Cultivate Fund, either on their own or in partnership with local community groups. The fund supports initiatives that strengthen our communities and reduce pressure on County Council services, thereby giving a return on investment. It’s open to voluntary and community groups, social enterprises, and public sector organisations including Parish Councils, and invests in projects that help to deliver the council’s priorities for children and families, vulnerable adults, and older people.
The next funding deadlines are:
- 1 August 2018 – Small ‘Cultivate’ grants (£2,000-£10,000)
- 1 November 2018 – Small ‘Cultivate’ grants and large ‘Innovate’ grants (£10,000-£50,000)
If you’d like to talk through your project idea, please join us for an advice session on 24 September, 9:45am-12pm at March Community Centre. Book your free place on Eventbrite.
Further information and on-line application forms are available on the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation website.
