Voluntary and community groups in Gwynedd are encouraged to apply for revenue and capital grants to deliver projects that improve the quality of life for the county’s residents and its communities.

Cist Gwynedd’s Community Support Fund offers grants of up to £10,000, to encourage communities to realise these goals by taking a more proactive role in their communities. The Welsh Church Fund offers grants of between £3,000 to £5,000 for registered charities and a contribution of £300 is committed to local eisteddfodau in Gwynedd, which can be accessed by sending an e-mail and a copy of your bank statement to Cist Gwynedd Officer ([email protected]).

Sioned Williams, head of Gwynedd Council’s economy and community department said: “Cist Gwynedd grants support a variety of projects which strengthen communities throughout the county. It offers an opportunity for residents to make a real difference in their own communities.”

The deadline for Community Support Fund applications is 13 May. The fund is open to receive applications by email only. An application form is available on the council website or via contact with the office. For more, email [email protected] or call 01286 679 153.
