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.

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 lifestyles
  • Involving people of all ages and abilities in the community
  • Promoting the Welsh language
  • Responding to challenges following Covid-19
  • Responding to challenges of the cost-of-living crisis
We cannot consider applications:
  • Towards running costs
  • Towards a one-off project/event that starts/will take place before the Grants Panel meeting
  • From companies which aim to profit
  • From individuals
  • From schools – for mainstream activities that should be funded by another source
  • From groups for religious activities
Priority will be given to applications within communities where Grŵp Cynefin has a presence.
The grants panel meets six times a year and applications should be submitted by

12pm on the 1st of February, April, June, August, October and December.

You will be notified if you are successful or not within a week following the Grants Panel’s meeting.
A group is unable to submit another application within a 12-month period e.g. if an application is considered in April’s grants panel, the next application cannot be considered until the following April.
