Cash 4 U - Youth-Led Grant 2024-25

GAVO are, once again, proud to offer community and voluntary organisations in Newport, Monmouthshire, Caerphilly and Blaenau Gwent up to £1,000 from the 'Cash 4 U' Grant, supported by the WCVA. This is a youth-led grant which aims to encourage young people into volunteering opportunities and improve community services.

In order to be eligible, you will need to have an existing volunteer between the age of 14-25. Each project will need to have a lead member over the age of 18 OR be supported by an adult that is part of an organisation. Where organisations are funded, they should:

• be legally constituted with a governing document that is signed and adopted; (the objectives of the project must fit with the constitution)

• be independent of government and private sector

• have a bank account, in the name of the organisation, which requires at least two signatures

Where a lead young person is identified that is not connected with an organisation, GAVO (or another selected constituted organisation) may act as the supporting organisation and pay invoices directly for the funded project. The Application Form is below and the closing date is the 31st July 2024. Please don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity!

Please email completed applications to

If you have any questions, the Youth Volunteering Officers are happy to assist. All contact details can be found here: Volunteering | GAVO

Here are some photos from the 6th Newport West Ranger Unit who used funding from last years youth-led grant to buy a Fast Pitch Event Shelter.

Also, a massive thank you to our wonderful youth panel members (photos below) for helping us to decide on which projects to fund! We look forward to welcoming them back this year.
