Service support grants

We are committed to creating and supporting local community groups and organisations to deliver services for our South Cambridgeshire residents. 

Service Support Funding Scheme

The Service Support Funding Scheme to the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) has been designed by the Council as a contribution to meeting this commitment.

The £402,000 fund offers three year funding agreements to eligible VCS organisations for the delivery of community support and development services in South Cambridgeshire.

A further £36,000 has been made available for services aimed at providing high quality housing advice and preventing and relieving homelessness.

  • 01 April 2020 - 31 March 2021
