Cornwall Emergency Appeal

Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF) manage the Emergency Fund Appeal. This appeal enables CCF to offer grants to certain organisations. These organisations must be operating in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. They must also be working with people affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The grants are to cover the costs for additional work, over and above normal activities. This work must be in response to the immediate relief of COVID-19 to members or beneficiaries.

CCF is also administering the local distribution of the National Emergencies Trust funding.
