The Wellbeing and Prevention Grants welcomes applications

The funds are aimed at community groups which can enhance the quality of life for people with care in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and support needs through developing a range of activities and events. The focus of projects must be on social inclusion, integration and independence. We are reviewing applications at the end of each month until February 2015.

Organisations can apply for more than one grant per year up to the value £2,500. All beneficiaries must be over the age of 18 years old and the project must support more than 10 people per application.
