Winter Support isn’t just for Christmas
£2,685 awarded from the Community Winter Support Fund
The nights slowly grow shorter with Spring on the way, and TVA (Torfaen Voluntary Alliance) understands how tough this time of the year is and in doing so, created the Community Winter Support Fund, with support from Welsh Government and Third Sector Support Wales.
The purpose of this grant is to help and support those under pressure during the winter period. The fund can be accessed by third sector and not for profit organisations/groups to support any age group and we welcome your ideas on how to do so.
The funding panel has recently met and has decided on the following:
