Our Voluntary Youth Work Organisations Support Scheme has now closed. This is a fantastic opportunity for local youth group organisations to gain access to crucial funds that will enable them to support young people across Wales.

Please ensure that you’ve read the guidance form before filling out an application form as this contains the key dates for applying in Round 2, information regarding the requirements for eligibility and general information on the scheme. If you are eligible, please contact Amanda@cwvys.org.uk in the first instance, using the application forms provided.

This is an ’emergency’ fund to support voluntary youth work organisations from going under and/or to be able to pay the bills and keep the doors open with current provision and services.

If you have been successful in your application and were awarded anything in Round 1, you will not be able to reapply. For those other applicants who we couldn’t support because we simply didn’t have enough to go around and/or were unsuccessful because they didn’t articulate the critical situation they faced and the need for the money, can reapply.

We will need organisations to give us a (estimate) breakdown of how much they need over the next 6 months and for which ‘bills’ rather than to and ask without any clear indication of where they will ringfence the money.

The VYWOSS fund It is not for new projects/activities that organisations would like to deliver.
