Cash 4 U - Volunteering Wales Grant

Volunteering by young people is encouraged and supported through Welsh Government's Volunteering Wales Grant scheme and a percentage of the funding available has been ring-fenced to support projects that exclusively recruit young volunteers aged 14 - 25 (This ring-fenced money makes up our Cash 4 U funding pot in Gwent)

Cash 4 U grants are available of up to £2500 per project in the GAVO footprint (Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire & Newport), however larger requested amounts may be considered if the project is Gwent-wide. 

We are particularly interested in receiving applications with a focus on any of the seven goals, identified by the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 (you can click on each goal to find out more):

A Wales of Vibrant Culture & Thriving Welsh Language

A Globally Responsible Wales
