Positive change for one and all

We believe in a positive life for all people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, free from poverty and social isolation. To achieve this, we raise funds from individuals and businesses and distribute them to community and grassroots non-profit organisations who are changing people’s lives across the county.
