The Crisis Fund is to benefit people in crisis who are urgently in need of small, one off amounts of money. These funds can be accessed through charitable organisations throughout Cornwall who hold a pot of funds to distribute to individuals in crisis situations.

Charitable organisations reaching people in Crisis can apply for £500 to distribute small amounts, usually £30 or less to a maximum of £90 when there is a need for immediate help, to alleviate destitution or poverty.
These funds can then be topped up once the balance falls to £50 or less, on the condition a full list of records are kept and sent to us as evidence, these template forms are provided by us.
Owing to limited means no more than four requests a year from the same organisation will be considered except in exceptional circumstances.

If you are a new organisation wanting to access these funds please complete an initial application in the first instance.
