Local Communities Programme
Community Foundation in Wales will re-open the Local Communities programme for applications on the 1st October 2016. Run in partnership with Comic Relief, grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 will be available to support projects that will empower local people and enable them to create lasting change in their communities. Projects should be run by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community. Organisations can apply for funding to:
- Improve people’s life skills, education, employability and enterprise
- Maximise people’s ability to strengthen community cohesion and build social capacity
- Advance people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing and safety.
