For groups that have received a CCF grant within the last three years

Supporting documents required for your application: We have simplified our application process for groups known to us in order to help people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic quickly. If you have applied to CCF within the last three years and we already have your documents on file, unless they have changed, we do not request further copies.

We do require a copy of your most recent Accounts and a copy of a bank statement in the last three months. The bank account must have at least 2 signatories.  If there have been changes to the structure and governance of your organisation in the last three years, please advise us during the application process.

We do reserve the right to request additional information, should it be required.

Projects we are keen to support include, but are not limited to:

  • Support for vulnerable and older people in their homes, providing food and medicines
  • Funding for community groups that are linked into the hubs being created to coordinate the above
  • Special provision of crisis services for rough sleepers and those living in temporary accommodation with changed practices to keep clients and staff as safe as possible
  • Free takeaway lunches and online youth services for young people in a very disadvantaged area, supported by local volunteers
  • Non-perishable food and essential living and baby items for distribution to destitute refugees and asylum seekers
  • To reach (with support and information) local residents who don’t have access to the internet/smartphones – via self-care packages, coordinating volunteers and keeping the local ‘hub’ accessible to them.

Each application will be considered on an individual basis, with grant awards ranging from £1000 to £5000

For further information about applying and what happens when you have submitted your application, please visit Frequently Asked Questions.

Please note: we cannot process applications without a copy of the most recent Accounts and a copy of a bank statement in the last three months attached to the application.

CCF’s current priority is to process the Emergency Fund applications as quickly as possible in order to reach those in greatest need during this crisis. To this end we have currently suspended all regular grant-making for projects. It is our sincere hope that we will be able to fund a great many of your invaluable projects in time, when we emerge out of this epidemic. Our Crisis Fund and some programmes supporting individuals are still open for applications, please click here for a list.

We are grateful to all our donors who have supported the Emergency Fund Appeal so generously. Cornwall Council have donated £100,000 to the Emergency Fund and we are working in partnership with the National Emergencies Trust.
