Local charities and community organisations have a special role in reaching some of the most vulnerable people in our communities, developing trusted relationships and implementing practical support programmes that work.

Funds raised from this campaign will:

Enable charitable organisations to hold a pot of funds to distribute small grants to vulnerable and low income individuals who struggle to heat their home and maintain a reasonable quality of life during the winter months

Support charitable organisations running additional activities over the winter months

How can you respond to your beneficiaries needs during the winter months?

All grant funding must be spent during the winter months and no later than the 31st March 2018.

Last year’s Surviving Winter Appeal enabled CCF to award more than £13,000 in grants to 11 community groups. More than 630 people in Cornwall benefited from the appeal.

Concern Wadebridge, for example, received funding towards providing a daily kitchen, providing light warm snacks for elderly and vulnerable people during the winter months.  Manager, Andy Lyle, said, “For some who use the centre it is the only warm meal they will have that day.”

Grants Manager Kirsty Philpott says, “It’s the generous support of our Friends and the general public that means we can help improve the health and wellbeing of Cornish people struggling this winter.  Every year we are struck by the high level of need and every pound donated makes a difference.”

Applications will be processed and decisions will be made within 7 working days of receiving your application.
