Across the Atlantic and Moor area, our funding aims to strengthen local businesses and provide local people with opportunities to gain skills, training and work.
In order to achieve our aims we will fund projects which:
- Help local businesses grow
- Help people to develop skills which will strengthen their local economy

Projects Facilitator / Atlantic and Moor LAG
Ian graduated with a degree in Archaeology back in 1995 and worked for the National Lottery Heritage Fund (Heritage Lottery Fund) in London, and was responsible for establishing the Fund's Exeter office.
From 2003, he worked as a self-employed consultant developing and delivering projects on behalf of both Local and national Government, including being commissioned to write strategic reports which in-turn informed the Government's decision to recognise the Cornish as a national minority in 2014.
Ian is a Director of the Bude Coastal Community Team, a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh, and a Trustee of the Blanchminster Trust (which is Britain’s oldest grant-giving charity).
He loves Cornwall and recommends a “walk along the Bude canal starting from town and If you’re lucky you’ll spend the day in the company of Kingfishers, water voles and jumping trout; then pick up the footpath to the Blue Flag winning Widemouth beach for some of Cornwall’s best waves, and then find a spot to watch the glorious sunset”.
