Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales – Phase 2 – New Support

Changes to offer new funding to provide survival and recovery support for voluntary organisations in Wales during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since April 2020 the Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales has been providing support to help organisations through the pandemic, but as time moves on it is appropriate for this to enter a new phase. The fund will expand its range of support, whilst still making available survival funding for those who need it. To assist recovery and to help organisations become more truly resilient for the future WCVA is  adding two new strands.

The fund is part of the £24m of support announced by Welsh Government and will involve a blend of 75% grant and 25% initially interest free loan to be available to voluntary sector organisations towards the costs of ongoing revenue expenditure, including salaries. Organisations can apply for up to £100,000. The fund is split into three strands: Survive, Improve and Diversify.

WCVA is very much open to organisations looking to collaborate or work in partnership with other organisations to apply under the Improve and Diversify strands.

Examples could be:

  • Organisations looking to merge back office functions;
  • Organisations looking to share a fundraiser or other resources;
  • A joint venture on a new trading activity;
  • Formal merger
