GVS Funding

GVS works with partners to administer various funds available in The Vale of Glamorgan. The following is a list of funds that we are currently administering.

COVID-19 High Risk Groups: Charity and Voluntary Groups Small Grant Calls for Expressions of Interest

The Integrated Health and Social Care Partnership, on behalf of the Cardiff and Vale Regional Partnership Board, has identified some funding for charities and voluntary groups.

This fund is for organisations who have changed the way they deliver services to meet increased or changing needs during the COVID-19 crisis. These services will build on good practice, and address the impact of the gaps in provision for people living in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

This funding should be used specifically to improve mental wellbeing and tackle loneliness for the most vulnerable in our communities.  Expressions of Interest will need to demonstrate how they meet the criteria outlined in the Covid-19 Small Grant Guidance.

The fund will be limited to £5,000 per organisation, and can include a combination of revenue and capital expenditure.

Expressions of Interest are invited from third sector organisations across Cardiff and the Vale.  Please complete the Expression of Interest form, available to download here.

Applications are also available on request to enquiries@gvs.wales.

All Expressions of Interest must be submitted to enquiries@gvs.wales no later than 12 noon on Tuesday 2nd June 2020.
