Community Facilities Programme

The Community Facilities programme, is part of the Welsh Government’s Tackling Poverty Agenda.

Capital grants are available to community-led voluntary groups, social enterprises and community organisations to tackle poverty and its effects, increase opportunity, create prosperity for all and develop resilient communities where people are engaged and empowered – through the development of community facilities.

Facilities must be useful to, and well used by, people in Welsh communities.

There are two levels of funding available:  

Applicants can apply for more than one grant within three years, up to a maximum of three awards. No organisation will be awarded more than £250,000 in any three year period.

Grants can fund a variety of purposes, including training services, local health services, safeguarding and providing or re-introducing local community services such as libraries and post offices. Grants could also provide digital access, encourage co-location of local groups and host food banks.

The application process has two stages: an Expression of Interest stage and a Full Application stage. Applicants should note that this is a popular fund and even strong applications may be turned down.

Groups can apply at any time before 31 March 2018.
