Prosperity for All
Grants will be allocated to projects that can demonstrate that they are able to make a contribution to delivering the Welsh Government’s strategy, Prosperity for All, which describes a long-term aim to build a Wales that is prosperous and secure, healthy and active, ambitious and learning, and united and connected.
The strategy identifies five priority areas which have the potential to make the greatest contribution to long-term prosperity and well-being. These are early years, better mental health, housing, skills and employability and social care. They are areas where it has been shown that earlier intervention and more seamless services can make a real difference to people’s lives.
The Volunteering Wales Grants for 2019/20 will support volunteering projects that contribute towards achieving outcomes in one or more of the priority areas.
Volunteering by young people is encouraged and supported through this grant scheme and a percentage of the funding available has been ring fenced to support projects that exclusively recruit young volunteers aged 14 – 25.
Literature Wales has recently announced that the next round of Bursaries and Mentoring is now open for submission. The schemes are open to emerging and experienced writers alike.
The LITERATURE WALES WRITERS’ BURSARIES enable writers to develop new work without any firm commitment to its publication. This gives writers
the opportunity to venture into new territory and develop their artistic process, providing them with the time and resources to research, write, review and reflect.
A SUPPORT FUND BURSARY is a sum of up to £1,000 for writers with mobility problems or disabilities in need of specialist equipment and assistance to enable them to develop their work in progress.
The MENTORING SCHEME offers support and practical advice to writers at the start of their careers by offering them a place on a bespoke mentoring course as well as a series of one-to-one sessions with an experienced writer in order to develop a specific work in progress to a publishable standard.
THE CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 BURSARIES AND MENTORING IS 5.00 PM ON TUESDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2018.
The guidelines and application forms for the 2019 Literature Wales Writers’ Bursaries and 2019 Mentoring are available to download from the Literature Wales website.

The fourth round of Ffilm Cymru Wales’ Beacons short film scheme is now open for applications.
Funded through Ffilm Cymru’s BFI Welsh Talent Network, Beacons invests in emerging writers, directors and producers from Wales to develop bold and unique voices, explore diverse forms of cinematic storytelling, and establish flourishing careers as feature filmmakers. This year, between five and seven short films will be funded, with awards ranging between £5,000 and £15,000. Films can be up to 15 minutes in length, made in any genre or technique, including animation, documentary, Virtual Reality and 360° filmmaking, and may be in English, Welsh or a mix of languages reflecting the rich heritage and cultural diversity of Wales.
Kimberley Warner, Ffilm Cymru’s Head of Creative Business, comments: “Beacons is our best opportunity to discover the next wave of exciting Welsh filmmakers; we’re looking for filmmakers with a strong point of view and a cinematic eye, and not necessarily a formal background in film.”
