GVS, with thanks to funding from Welsh Government and the Vale of Glamorgan Council, is administering a small grants scheme to help voluntary groups in the Vale of Glamorgan who are actively working in response to the COVID 19 outbreak.
Small grants are available up to a maximum of £75 for new groups that are not constituted and up to £200 for constituted groups. The grant can be used to purchase equipment for your group, to go towards printing leaflets and flyers or for any activity relating to benefit or support your community during this crisis.
To be eligible you must satisfy the following brief criteria:
i. Be based in the Vale of Glamorgan
ii. Working in direct response to the COVID 19 outbreak
iii. Working for the benefit of your local community
Applications from businesses, groups outside the Vale of Glamorgan or individuals will not be considered. If you have previously received funding from this scheme, you are welcome to reapply. Repeat applications are welcome.
Please request an application form by emailing [email protected]
Glamorgan Voluntary Services
The Staff team at GVS are currently fielding many responses and queries from
- Individuals offering to help their local community
- Voluntary and Community groups developing their own contingency plans
- Public Sector partners seeking the best way to access safe, coordinated voluntary and community-based support for the Residents of the Vale of Glamorgan.
In our role as the County Voluntary Council for the Vale of Glamorgan we are concentrating our efforts on being the conduit between support offered and support needed, whilst supporting organisations, some newly formed, with their governance and planning.
