Cornwall Rural Community Charity
About Cornwall Rural Community Charity
We are a not for profit charity supporting communities across Cornwall.
Dating back to just after the Second World War, we have set up many services that have improved the lives of people right across Cornwall.
In 2016, CRCC and Penwith Community Development Trust (PCDT) a similar organisation based in Penzance, merged and are now collectively registered under Cornwall Community Development Limited (CCDL) and work under a single board of trustees. Both have retained their trading names and continue to deliver collaboratively.
With, on average, 70 staff and a turnover of approximately £2M a year, we support a number of projects such as, community development; fishing and coastal communities; infrastructure services, training provision, informal and unpaid carers, volunteer led projects and support for young people.
CRCC is part of a network of 38 RCCs across England, all sharing the aim of enhancing rural communities. RCCs are represented at a national level by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England).
CRCC’s main office is in central Truro, with a satellite office in St Dennis, and PCDT’s premises are located in Penzance.
The Charity delivers varied projects, which are greatly valued by those supported and helps the organisation to meet its charitable mission of building ‘vibrant, sustainable, inclusive communities’.
