Up to £2,000 for projects building stronger, healthier, inclusive and sustainable communities. 

    Grants are given to those projects helping people that face disadvantage and to those that engage and support local people, and therefore build stronger, healthier, inclusive and sustainable communities. The fund focuses around CCF’s ‘Improving Lives’ funding stream which supports the following core grant programmes: Children and Families, Adults facing life crisis and Adults with health conditions.
