Seeking Collaborative Partners from Rural Business Sector

Seeking Collaborative Partners from Rural Business Sector

A call out to all businesses based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Have you seen the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub Rural Business Grant currently available? We are keen to work with a partner from the rural business sector (see eligibility below) to develop a collaborative project which has wool/natural fibre at it’s heart.

What are the grants for?
These capital grants are available to rural businesses, particularly farms, tourism, leisure, and food and drink producers, who are looking to develop and grow by diversifying or developing their existing products, services or facilities. Capital means you must spend grants on lasting assets such as a building or equipment. The scheme prioritises activity in:
– nature recovery investments
– improvements to the quality of the existing tourism offer
– food and drink processing for non-farmer owned businesses
– projects that grow the local social economy

The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is 5pm, Monday 12 February 2024. If you have a project idea that you would like to develop and are looking for a project partner, please get in touch with us to discuss further: [email protected]
