Talking Together in Cambridgeshire

The Talking Together in Cambridgeshire (TTiC) 2021 funding round is now open!

TTiC runs across Wisbech, Huntingdon, North East Cambridge City, March, Chatteris, Meldreth, Melbourn and Duxford. TTiC offers grant funding for community-based projects that aim to boost the communication, language and literacy levels of children aged 0–5.

This year they are looking to fund innovative community-based/community-led projects that will use the 50 Things To Do Before You’re 5 app and app activities to help families understand more about how they can support children’s communication, language and literacy development.

If you are interested in applying for funding to run a project, please visit the TTiC funding information page. Here you can review the TTiC aims and learn more about the previously funded projects. From Monday 12 April 2021 you will also be able to download the new guidance document and application form.
