*This round is now open for applications*

Please visit e-tender Wales, register your organisation, and search for Invitation to tender: itt_69636 . Further guidance on how to register your organisation on e-tender Wales can be found in the 'Guidance for Applicants' document on the right-hand side of this page.

The scheme is administered by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and is designed to deliver the government's commitment to 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 and connected.

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.
