A growing body of data, including data from ONS shows that people who are Black, Asian and from minority ethnic (BAME) groups have been disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. BAME-led organisations have and still are playing a pivotal role in ensuring that vital emergency support reaches those from these hard-hit communities. This fund has been created to support those organisations that are led by and supporting Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) families and communities across Wales to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

*Please note that we define a BAME-led organisation under the following terms issued by the Race Equalities Funders Alliance:

  • The organisation’s mission and purpose is to benefit BAME communities.
  • The majority of the leadership (i.e. at least half of the senior team and the Trustee board) are from the BAME community(ies) that it serves

Grants available

Grants of between £2,000 – £5,000 are available to be awarded to BAME-led* community organisations with an income of approximately £25,000 in the latest reported financial year.

Grants are available to support the running costs of an organisation, to contribute towards the costs of a project and/or to meet a specific cost.

The fund is open to constituted, Welsh, community-based groups that can describe the impact of the pandemic on their community and tell us what they will do to help their people in the coming months and years.
