The Cinnamon Network ‘Project Lab’ competition

Each year, the ‘Cinnamon Network’ invites ambitious church-based projects that want to replicate their work across the country to enter the ‘Cinnamon Project Lab’ competition. This year, Cinnamon is inviting entries from church-based projects that support local people with housing needs and build community. The 2020 competition is being run in partnership with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s ‘Commission on Housing, Church and Community.’ Two competition winners will each receive a £30,000 development grant.

The types of project that will be considered include tenancy training, housing advice and advocacy, mentoring and befriending, hosting or hospitality, resident engagement, community self-help, supported accommodation, co-living schemes and temporary use of empty properties. Projects will need to submit an online application form and a 60-second video. The application deadline is late June. More information HERE.
