Our Funding Opportunities

Local people themselves have defined the priorities for the Community Fund – you can see what they are in the Pen y Cymoedd Prospectus.  As the Fund will be here for the next twenty years, community benefit activities can be supported now, and we can all also plan and deliver for the long-term.

Anyone who wants to take part in any funded project or activity should be welcome to do so, unless there are sound reasons why this isn’t possible (e.g. the activity is exclusively for women, young people or older people). Your governing document and policies should make this clear. You can view our own Equal Opportunities Policy here.
