PCDT & CRCC Communications Statement

Communications Statement 


PCDT and CRCC are pleased to be able to tell you that they are in detailed discussions to develop and enhance the delivery of support to communities and organisations in Cornwall. The proposal is that from the end of October this year they will be merging to form a single operating company, and charity, under the name of Cornwall Community Development Limited.


If successful this strategic move will allow the experienced PCDT training team to operate more widely across all of Cornwall and the collective Capacity Building and Community Development Teams of CRCC and PCDT to continue to support grass roots community groups despite the withdrawal of funding for this vital work by Cornwall Council. 


In practice it is hoped that the operating names of PCDT and CRCC will continue and through restructuring of the back office functions of both organisations some efficiency savings can be made to make more resource available to meet our charitable purposes.

In the short term it is not expected that there will be a need to significantly change the office accommodation for either organisation.
CRCC and PCDT look forward to being able to work with you and support the people and groups within Cornwall into the future.
