Volunteering Main Grants Scheme now open

Apply for up to £50,000 over two years!

Volunteering Wales Grants is a scheme funded by the Welsh Government to promote and improve volunteering in Wales.

Volunteering Wales is about ‘…the kind of country we want to be’.

A volunteer is someone who commits time and energy for the benefit of society and the community, and volunteering can take many forms. It is undertaken freely and by choice without concern for financial gain.

Volunteering is one of the national wellbeing indicators tracking Wales progress against the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act goals.  To embed volunteering, create high quality volunteering opportunities, and engage young people, Welsh Government have funded three key schemes under Volunteering Wales.
