Welcome to the fourth edition of THE FORUM, Cambridgeshire Community Foundation (CCF’s) quarterly magazine.

Powered by Publish for Free

Find out more about who we are, how we operate, the donors we work with, the projects they fund, and the positive effects on local communities across Cambridgeshire.

Issue four of The Forum focuses once again on local needs. Our 2017 Vital Signs research focuses on early years’ education and development, with results illustrating the damaging effect that deprivation and child poverty has on a child’s early years’ development, as well as inequalities in early years’ development within Cambridgeshire. The goal of Vital Signs is to take the pulse of our community, to measure the quality of life and to highlight the county’s priorities and opportunities for action.  We plan to use the report to start conversations with people who can support community philanthropy.

The magazine can be read online and hard copies are available on request.
