Working to strengthen local

Cambridgeshire Communities Innovation Fund

29 November 2016

An Innovation Fund, initially worth £1 million, has been set up by Cambridgeshire County Council to help community organisations to invest in ideas that help keep people safe, independent and well and prevent the need for costly services.

Voluntary and public sector organisations, including constituted community groups, Parish Councils and social enterprises are eligible to apply for grants of £2,000 upwards, initially with a short proposal about their idea. By investing in great local ideas and talent we can together help create more sustainable and cost effective solutions delivered in communities.

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation is managing the Fund on our behalf and full details about how to apply can be found here.

Further resources can be found on Cambridgeshire Insight to help community organisations understand the needs of the County.
