Call 1: AMLAG01: Business Development & Growth.
We are seeking projects that will support local businesses to grow, create jobs, and that recruit from the AMLAG region. Projects will take the form of either business support and consultancy, or capital investment activity. Support and consultancy elements must represent a minimum of 12 hours interaction with businesses.
Call 2: AMLAG 02: Entrepreneurship in AMLAG.
We know that the AMLAG area is brimming with potential entrepreneurs; can you provide a project to support these fledgling businesses?
Ideally projects will support the development of new entrepreneurs, as well as helping businesses that are less than 12 months old to further develop. Single focused projects will be welcomed but a combined approach is preferred. Partnership working and co-design approaches are encouraged, including partnerships with local organisations to support engagement and/or legacy activities.
Demonstration of innovative thinking within the applicant’s exit strategy is a priority.
Call 3: AMLAG 03: Developing People.
Do you have a project that would support and deliver personal and skills development to those who are not in employment? We recognise the limited number of employment, skills, and training opportunities in the AMLAG area which is partly due to the difficulties of rurality and small population centres.
We believe there is scope to develop new types of delivery with very localised activity, or innovative approaches to engaging and supporting people access opportunities that will develop them.
Projects will work with those who are ‘unemployed’ or inactive’ and will move people into, or closer to, the labour market. Links with employers (local and national) will be a crucial element of these projects, as will support for participants to access opportunities.
Call 4: AMLAG 04: Developing community and business workspace.
We are looking for projects that will develop or refurbish new workspace in the West Cornwall area. Is there a space that would make an ideal hot-desking facility? Are there small industrial units just waiting to pop-up and provide space for local businesses?
We seek for projects that may take the form of the construction of new, or refurbishment of existing, business units, co-working spaces, hot-desking facilities, or any other form of workspace that meets local need.
Call 5: AMLAG 05: Atlantic & Moor Rural Services.
We know that living in a rural area means that you cannot always access the services you need easily. We are looking for innovative projects that propose the implementation of new services or the development of an existing service – where there is a clear and demonstrated economic benefit to one or more AMLAG’s core area.
Local transport issues should be considered intrinsically within all projects and creative solutions are encouraged. Other possible areas of work include accessing affordable energy, supporting people to get to healthcare services, or new ways of collectively buying services.
We will fund projects that engage and empower local people to tackle local issues through training activities, bolstered by capital investment into buildings, equipment, and potentially vehicles. Community capacity building is crucial for both individuals and communities in order to develop resilience and to create opportunities; you will also need to show how your project will support the community long after the funding has finished.
