Cornwall Rural Community Council

CRCC is a Cornish Charity that informs and guides local groups and individuals to achieve their aspirations and develop sustainable, inclusive communities.

It is part of a network of 38 Community Councils across England, all sharing the aim of enhancing rural communities.  There is a staff of 23 full-time and 39 part-time – many are out in the field offering face to face support and information and are complemented by a small robust core of staff supporting them.


MAKING A CASE: Community and Social Enterprise in Cornwall 

This 10 minute film shows some of the great achievements of a selection of social enterprise projects across Cornwall. Projects were designed to improve social, economic and environmental sustainability in the community and ranged from community-owned shops to multi-use community centres and social enterprise renewable energy.

The projects received support and guidance from CRCC (Cornwall Rural Community Council) via the CASE (Community and Social Enterprise) project and helped to secure around £5m of funding from RDPE (Regional Development Programme for England) over the last few years.
