Cambridgeshire County Council’s Innovate & Cultivate Fund has been updated and has a new name – Cultivate Cambs! We’re pleased to announce that the first deadline for Cultivate Cambs grant applications is 16 September 2022. Pre-application advice appointments will be offered in July.
Cultivate Cambs awards grants of £2,000 to £15,000 for new initiatives that support adults & older people with care and support needs, and children, young people & families, to live independently, safe and well in thriving and inclusive communities.
The fund is open to voluntary and social enterprise sector organisations based in and outside of Cambridgeshire, and public sector organisations in Cambridgeshire, for projects that benefit Cambridgeshire residents. Please note that projects serving Peterborough residents are not eligible.
We encourage you to seek pre-application advice on your project ideas before submitting your application. Appointments to discuss projects supporting vulnerable adults are offered 5 – 7 July and appointments for projects supporting children, young people and families are on 14 – 15 July. Please pre-book your 15-minute telephone or virtual advice appointment here.

Cultivate Ideas offer guidance and support for setting up the following community-led initiatives – Enhanced Community Food Projects, Care Micro-enterprises, Community Warden Schemes, Community Youth Worker, Timebanks, Good Neighbour Schemes, Dementia Friendly Communities and Men’s Sheds.
