More funding for voluntary and community organisations in Cambridgeshire

26 October 2022

More funding is being made available for voluntary and community organisations in Cambridgeshire to support residents.

Cambridgeshire County Council has announced that the next deadline for Cultivate Cambs grant applications will be 16 December, with pre-application advice appointments beginning the month before.

Cultivate Cambs awards grants of £2,000 to £15,000 for new initiatives which support adults and older people with care and support needs, and children, young people and families, to live independently, safe and well in thriving and inclusive communities.

The fund is open to voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises based in and outside of Cambridgeshire, and public sector organisations in Cambridgeshire.

Project proposals must benefit Cambridgeshire residents and also reduce pressure on council services.

Cllr Hilary Cox Condron, vice chair of the Communities, Social Mobility and Inclusion Committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “Cultivate Cambs carries on the great work of the county council’s previous Innovation and Innovate & Cultivate funds which have funded more than 100 projects since 2016.

“I’m delighted that more money is now available which will enable local organisations to make a big difference in our communities, both supporting residents and helping us to save money in the process.”

Pre-application advice begin in November and can be booked at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/cultivate-cambs-advice-for-grant-applicants-november-2022-tickets-444577973687.
