This short-term grant has been developed to provide funding to enable innovation and collaboration between sectors and/or regional partnerships on the issue of child poverty. It should be illustrated how children, young people and families in poverty will benefit from this grant funded additional collaborative working arrangement in the longer term. Collaborative activities which include the private sector are welcomed but the funding is not available to fund any direct costs to a private sector partner. We aim to achieve a Wales-wide reach through the suite of successful applications. Individual applications do not need to offer national reach, they can be locality, community or subject matter specific.

This is a youth-led grant which aims to encourage young people into volunteering opportunities and improve community services.





This programme is aimed at registered charities and CICs which are led by and working for Deaf and Disabled people. Your organisation will work directly with Deaf and Disabled people over the long term to support them to have more choice and control over their lives, access their rights and entitlements and challenge the barriers they face. Your work will be based on a social model of disability and you will be able to show how this understanding shapes the work that you do, and enables people to have their voices heard. Successful applicants will receive a grant of £75,000, over three years (£25,000 per year). The grant will be unrestricted, so organisations awarded funding will be able to use the grant to support any costs that further your organisation’s social purpose.
