About Us

Transformation Cornwall strengthens faith based social action in Cornwall.

Our Vision is to see faith in action at the heart of flourishing communities in Cornwall

We are an organisation that builds on our foundations of Christian values helping to strengthen communities across Cornwall.

We work in three ways to support groups in tackling poverty and exclusion in Cornwall through our:

Meet the Funders Programme: providing innovative conferences and workshops to inform, inspire and strengthen community projects.

1:1 work: with individual churches, faith groups and grassroot organisations in Cornwall.

Strengthening links: between faith based and non-faith organisations around 6 core themes (mental health; food poverty; homelessness; modern slavery; financial inclusion & climate emergency).

Transformation Cornwall is a Joint Venture between the Diocese of Truro, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Methodist District, Churches Together in Cornwall and Church Urban Fund.

We are a capacity building organisation with Christian values. We support groups in tackling poverty and exclusion in Cornwall by:

  1. Providing conferences and workshops giving networking, support and information through our 'Meet the Funders' programme.
  2. Supporting individual groups and organisations through our 1:1 work to inspire, inform and signpost.
  3. Strengthening links between faith based and mainstream organisations
