Welcome to the Community Foundation

We strengthen communities and enrich local life by inspiring and supporting effective giving

We ensure the generosity of individuals, families, businesses and charities is matched with excellent groups and individuals that bring people together, provide great services and activities and make our area a better place to enjoy life. To apply for a grant or other support, click here.

Across our region, the case for supporting local communities has never been stronger. To read about the people who are already enjoying the rewards of giving back to their communities, click here.
