Do you have an idea for a project in Penwith? Do you need some funding? Read on for more information on our community grants.
The Penwith Landscape Partnership community grants scheme is for groups and organisations who create positive and lasting change for the people and landscapes of Penwith. We are interested in hearing from you if you deliver activities within any of the following areas:

If you have an idea for funding get in touch with the PLP Programme Manager at email@example.com and we can arrange to discuss your idea before you make an application.
Examples of previous funded ideas have been building a footpath bridge, funding for wildflower seeds, creating ponds, buying equipment that helps to protect or record wildlife, training for heritage skills, repairing Cornish Hedges, funding for wildlife experts to lead training and workshops, helping important heritage sites remain part of our future. If your idea is similar or completely new we are keen to hear from you.
