Event description

Description

The Innovate & Cultivate Fund is Cambridgeshire County Council’s fund for projects that strengthen our communities and reduce demand on council services.

The fund is for voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations, and public sector bodies in Cambridgeshire. Project beneficiaries must be residents of Cambridgeshire (please note that the fund is not open to projects supporting residents of Peterborough).

Council services that are inviting applications are Adult Social Care and Children & Families services.

The fund has two grant streams:

Cultivate grants of £2,000 - £19,000 (*NEW* increased grant size)

Innovate grants of £19,001 - £50,000

The next application deadline is 1st August for Cultivate grants and Innovate grants.

Who is the advice session for?

This event is for eligible organisations planning to apply for a grant. You can book an appointment for one-to-one advice with a service expert who can help you to develop your project ideas. There will also be optional group workshops on writing a good application and on how to find useful data and information to support your application.

*New* Cultivate 'Seed' Fund Projects

Do you want to do something for your community but need some inspiration to start a project? We’ve compiled some ideas for you of successful schemes that can help people to remain independent and active within their community, encourage volunteering and complement more costly Council services. These include Timebanks, Good Neighbour Schemes, Dementia-Friendly Communities and Men's Sheds. You can find guidance on how to apply for a start-up grant for each of these projects on the Innovate & Cultivate webpage.

Where can I find more information?

Application forms and further information about the Innovate & Cultivate Fund and the fund's service priorities are available on the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation website. We recommend you take a look and come to the advice session with project ideas you plan to develop for your application.
