Awards for All Wales

Funding priority

A good application should do at least one of these three things:

  • bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
  • improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.

It’s important hat you involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you’re planning.
