Many of our services are free to the public (communities of Cornwall) and are paid for by our project funders. CRCC also offers specialist services that can be purchased at affordable rates.
A significant event in 2016 was the bringing together of CRCC with Penwith Community Development Trust (PCDT) a similar organisation based in Penzance.
