Your Voice Your Choice 2021

‘Your Voice, Your Choice’ is a partnership between the Gwent High Sheriffs’ Community Fund, the Office of the Gwent Police & Crime Commissioner and Community Foundation Wales to award grants of up to £5,000 to community groups across Gwent.

Owing to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event went online with 15 groups submitting videos of no longer than three minutes, outlining their pitch and how their project would benefit their local community.

These videos were then posted online and voted on by the other groups with the projects thought to be tackling the most important issues receiving a share of a a share of a £75,519 grants pot.
