identifying opportunities for more people to volunteer.
Prosperity for All
Grants will be allocated to projects that can demonstrate
that they are able to make a contribution to delivering the Welsh
Government's strategy, Prosperity for All,
which describes a long-term aim to build a Wales that is prosperous
and secure, healthy and active, ambitious and learning, and united
The strategy identifies five priority areas which
have the potential to make the greatest contribution to long-term
prosperity and well-being. These are early years, better
mental health, housing, skills and employability and social
care. They are areas where it has been shown that earlier
intervention and more seamless services can make a real difference
to people's lives.
The Volunteering Wales Grants for 2019/20 will support volunteering
projects that contribute towards achieving outcomes in one or more
of the priority areas.
Volunteering by young people is encouraged and
supported through this grant scheme and a percentage of the funding
available has been ring fenced to support projects that exclusively
recruit young volunteers aged 14 - 25.
To assist with your application please read the downloadable
documents on the right.
