Voluntary Services Recovery Fund now open

A new fund from Welsh Government and administered by WCVA will focus on reducing the inequality resulting from the pandemic.

Grants will support not for profit organisations working at a community scale up to a national level in Wales and can be between £10,000 – £100,000.

As the Welsh Government eases lockdown restrictions and people in Wales move forward, the funding needs to respond to new challenges.

Although the social restrictions are easing, many people are still in emergency situations that need urgent support.

The Voluntary Services Recovery Fund (VSRF) will focus on reducing inequalities across society because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many communities suffered disproportionately; therefore, actions need to take place to ensure a fair and just recovery.

The funding will also provide the resources for the voluntary sector to embed safe practises to carry on delivering essential services across Wales.

This fund is primarily focused on revenue funding; however, your funding request can contain costs for purchases of smaller ‘capital’ equipment including consumables (for example PPE, screens etc).

Activity will be funded for expenditure during the financial year 2020-21. They can consider requests where expenditure may be incurred outside of this financial year, owing to an essential need, this will need to be clearly demonstrated in the funding request.
