We are here to support you

The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is far reaching and includes major implications for the third sector and the communities that they serve.

We recognise that many small, local charities and community groups will be worried about its impact on their work and communities.

We wish to be as helpful as possible during the coming weeks and months so that charitable groups can focus on the vital work of supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. We understand that there will be times when staff and volunteers will not be available, when services may need to be provided in different ways, or when systems need to be flexible to ensure that needs are met.

We want to assure you that we:

  • Don’t want to add pressure, so we’re going to be as flexible as we can be about grants you already have. If you think you will struggle to meet a reporting deadline, please get in touch with us so that we can agree a more realistic time for you to get things to us wherever possible.
  • Understand you may need to use your funding to purchase equipment, or deliver services differently, and we will be reasonable if you need to adapt your activities and budget your grant differently to ensure your work can continue.

Please get in touch with a member of the Grants Team by e-mailing grants@communityfoundationwales.org.uk if you have any questions.
