There are currently two grants schemes administered by AVOW, please see individual links listed:
The Youth Led Grants Scheme
The Youth Led Grants Scheme is aimed at young people aged 14 – 25, who have an idea or project that will benefit their local community.
This could be a one-off project such as a group of young people organising a Community Arts Project to an individual organising a clean up day in their local community!
A grant of £500 is available for individuals or groups to fund their projects. A larger grant of £1000 would be considered by the grants panel if it is a large project that includes a lot of young volunteers.
A grants panel made up young volunteers aged 14 to 25 are the one’s who decide which applications to fund and how much the recieve!
All projects must comply to the criteria that has been set out, which is:
- They MUST be youth led
- They MUST include 2 or more young volunteers aged 14 to 25
- They MUST be of benefit to the local community
Other Terms and Conditions apply.
On-going application process.
AVOW Make a Difference Grant
For 25 years AVOW has been serving the voluntary and community organisations of Wrexham by providing advice, support and resources to make for a more robust and influential third sector.
To say Thank You for all the support from the Third Sector in Wrexham, AVOW created the Silver Jubilee Make a Difference Grant Fund. We aimed to raise £10,000 which was distributed to worthy causes throughout Wrexham County Borough outlining a project that will “make a difference”.
The Make a Difference Grant is currently CLOSED for applications. We will send out details and update this page when it re-opens.
