Transformation Cornwall is an ecumenical charity that supports faith-based community action and poverty tackling initiatives in Cornwall.
As Project Manager Jane Yeomans says, “It’s quite hard to find social action that doesn’t include some sort of faith element. Whether it’s the building, the initiative or the people involved, we connect with faith in its broadest terms to reach the maximum amount of people.”

Transformation Cornwall aims is to provide infrastructure and capacity building support to groups, churches, faith and non-faith based organisations to enable them to respond to issues of poverty, deprivation and marginalisation in their area. In other words, they are a critical friend who lends a hand.

How Transformation Cornwall works
The definition of faith includes all faiths and they approach their work in three ways:
- Providing capacity building events, support and information through their ‘Meet the Funders’ programme.
- Working with individual groups and organisations through 1:1 surgeries to enable groups to have project specific information.
- Strengthen links between faith based and mainstream organisations
How they are funded and supported
Transformation Cornwall is supported by the Diocese of Truro, the Church Urban Fund, the Cornwall Methodist District and Churches Together in Cornwall. It is part of the Church Urban Fund’s Joint Venture programme with dioceses around the country.
