Grant: £10,000 (loans up to £50,000)
Deadline: Friday 21 June 2019

This fund is aimed at helping those with a community and environmental focus to safeguard spaces and become more sustainable, and has been generated by proceeds from the 5p single-use carrier bag charge in Co-op’s Welsh food stores.

Welsh groups can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to explore ideas that could contribute to a more sustainable future for their community space. Funding could support feasibility costs, technical or legal fees, and projects that test and explore new ideas. 

Interest-free loans of up to £50,000 are also available to organisations to grow more established business ideas. Loans are usually repaid within five years with no requirement to make repayments in the first year, and some organisations could also be eligible for a further grant, dependent upon circumstances.
