If you want to learn more about the Cambridgeshire Innovation Fund administered by Cambridge Community Foundation on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council then please join us in South Cambridgeshire on the 30th March 2017.

Cambridgeshire County Council is investing in ideas and expertise that will help keep people safe, independent and well in their community, whilst reducing demand for council services.

The aim of the Fund is to support people to do things in their own communities or to develop a good idea, building on strengths and talents.
It is for community groups and organisations with big ideas about how to improve the lives of local people, particularly those who are deemed most vulnerable.
This could include a small scale local project that builds support for vulnerable people within the community, or a larger scale innovative project using new technology to transform the way vulnerable people can be supported.
The council are looking for proposals which:
  • increase capacity within communities to help others, so that people and communities become more resilient.
  • reduce the need for people to use Council services.
  • demonstrate the social value of the actions undertaken, and the impact on outcomes for the most vulnerable people in our communities.

They key speaker at this event will be the Innovation Fund Officer from Cambridgeshire County Council, Tammy Liu.
