Funding

Through the Cambridgeshire Communities Innovation Fund, Cambridgeshire County Council is investing in ideas and expertise that will help keep people safe, independent and well in their community, while reducing demand for Council services.

The aim of the Fund is to support people to do things in their own communities or to develop a good idea, building on strengths, talents and expertise.
It is for community groups and organisations with big ideas about how to improve the lives of local people, particularly those who are most vulnerable.

For example, this could be a small scale local project that builds support for vulnerable people within the community, or a larger scale innovative project using new technology to transform the way vulnerable people can be supported.

We are looking for proposals which aim to achieve the following:
Increased capacity within communities to help others, so that people and communities become more resilient
Reduce the need for people to use Council services
Demonstrate the social value of the actions undertaken, and the impact on outcomes for the most vulnerable people in our communities.
This fund is being administered by the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.
