Community Cohesion Fund is now open

Updated: May 29

A cohesive community is an area where those from different backgrounds share positive relationships, feel safe in the neighbourhood, and have a sense of mutual respect and shared values.  Within a cohesive society:


•       there is a common vision and sense of belonging by all communities.

•       the diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and valued.

•       similar life opportunities are available to all; and

•       strong and positive relationships exist and continue to be developed in the workplace, in schools and in the wider community.


Newport City Council would like to invite community groups and third sector organisations to apply for funding of between £500 and £2000. 

The funding available can be used to build cohesive and resilient communities, including to highlight and celebrate the diversity of communities across Newport.

Applications are welcomed for events, activities, and capacity building within Newport focussing on bringing communities together.


To apply for this fund please download and submit the form

via email by the 14th June 2024, funding must be spent by the end of March 2025.
