Does your group or project have funding journey stories? TSSW would love to share your experiences on their new funding website
Applying for funding can be a difficult experience, particularly
if your group is new to the process.
Reading about another project's route to success can be a great
source of inspiration and just might be the guidance a group needs
to help them along their funding journey.
That's why Third Sector Support
Wales (TSSW) is asking groups to provide case studies
for their new funding website. In return for sharing your
information, we will be happy to share a bit of comms and marketing
support, should you need it, to turn text into a visual case study
or infographic so that you also have a useful tool to share with
your Board or members.
TSSW is a
network of support organisations for the whole of the third sector
in Wales. It consists of the 19 local and regional support bodies
across Wales, the County Voluntary Councils (CVCs) and the national
support body, Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).
One of their four pillars of work is 'sustainable funding'. Within
this pillar TSSW provides services which enable third sector
organisations to secure and generate the resources they need to
survive, thrive and remain relevant in the future.
Their new funding website will help deliver on this work by
identifying, promoting and up-scaling good practice and innovation
across Wales. As well as case studies, the website will also
contain a funding portal to allow organisations to search for live
