Community Grant

This is a grant scheme up to £500 available for groups working within Grŵp Cynefin’s operational area (six counties of North Wales and north Powys). It is available to voluntary and community groups or to a group of residents who would like to get together to make a difference within their community. It is not essential that the group has a constitution.

How can we help your organisation and community?

We can fund projects that achieve one (or more) of the following:

  • Improving the area the group lives in
  • Organise an event to get the community together
  • Getting young people involved
  • Play and recreation opportunities for children and young people
  • Involving the whole community
  • Improving the environment
  • Making people feel safer and more secure
  • Creating spaces for wildlife
  • Improving the wellbeing of the community by encouraging active and healthy life styles
  • Involving people of all ages and abilities in the community

Who cannot apply*?

We cannot consider applications from:

  • Schools – for mainstream activities that should be funded by another source
  • Groups for religious activities
  • Individuals
  • Companies which aim to profit

The Grants Panel meets four times a year and applications should be submitted by: 12pm 3 January, 3 April, 3 July and 3 October. You will get a decision within 2 weeks of the closing date.
