Cinnnamon invites churches in Cambridgeshire to participate in an exciting pilot partnership with either Cambridgeshire County Council or Cambridgeshire Police in which targeted social action projects will be established in high-need, low-capacity communities.
Cinnamon believe that churches are well placed to offer support for those most likely to be impacted by the reduced budgets of local authorities around the country.
In this exciting new partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council and Cambridgeshire Police, local churches will have the opportunity to reduce demand on services by making a lasting difference in the lives of the vulnerable and marginalised.
Participating churches will receive:
- A £2,000 Micro-Grant to start a Cinnamon Recognised Project (see below):
- The Council are seeking applications to start the following four projects:
- The Police are willing to fund a wider selection of projects, providing they contribute to the priorities in the Police and Crime Plan.
Depending on the project selected and the location, participating churches will be partnered with either Cambridgeshire County Council or Cambridgeshire Police.
Cinnamon regional advisor Nick Amis, will contact any interested parties with further information.
Following the learning from this pilot, Cinnamon seeks to help churches partner with local authorities and police forces throughout the UK, to change lives and transform communities.
This grant round runs from 1 April to the 31st May and the next round will follow on 3rd June to the 31st July.
