About Support Fenland
Support Fenland was first developed in 2021 when Support Cambridgeshire (the partnership between Hunts Forum and CCVS) received funding from Lloyds Foundation Bank to set up a one-year pilot project looking at what an infrastructure support service would look like in Fenland. This pilot resulted in a report which made the case for further funding within the district to build on the work completed and to continue the legacy. Some of the work set up in this pilot has been carried over to the Support Cambridgeshire general work. After some years of talks between stakeholders and funding applications, in 2024, the Lottery Community Fund funded a five-year project to develop and implement infrastructure support across Fenland.

We look forward to hearing from you.
