Support for Funding Programmes, Projects & Partnerships

Programme and Fund Services provides advice, guidance and management services for public funding and investment projects and programmes.

The service has a successful track record of supporting partnerships, contractors and accountable bodies in the private, public and voluntary sectors.  It includes a comprehensive management and compliance service ranging from technical appraisals on new funding applications to administering claims and payments for approved projects.  The service ensures that funding is invested properly and gets to the beneficiaries whilst balancing the requirements of the contracting bodies.

We are experienced at running open funding programmes where there are multiple applications for support or managing contracts with set sub-contractors with targets and timescales that must be adhered to.

Comprehensive secretariat services are also provided, to remove the stress of organising meetings, framing agendas and taking minutes.  It ensures that meetings run effectively and in line with relevant constitutions.  This also includes practical assistance with organisational structures and constitutions as well as advice on membership.

Our successful work has been reflected in a multitude of funding schemes on behalf of various partnerships within Cornwall. Notable examples of success include the following:

  • Cornwall Works for Social Enterprise and Cornwall Works for Learning Disabilities - 6m Jobcentre Plus ESF (European Social Fund) investment (the latter winning a national ESF award).

  • Local Action Groups across Cornwall - 6m of RDPE (Rural Development Programme) funding from DEFRA.

  • Community Grants - 2m Skills Funding Agency through the ESF helping those out of work secure new skills.

  • Regional Growth Fund (13m) and ERDF (European Regional Development Fund - 4m) supporting businesses create jobs and grow their businesses respectively.

  • Fisheries Local Action Group  - 1.8m EFF (European Fisheries Fund) programme boosting the fishing industry in the county.

We deliver an objective and robust service, providing the tools and mechanisms to achieve success.
