Emergency support for local charities and the third sector

March 18, 2020 - 841 views

In response to Coronavirus and its impact on volunteering and the work of charitable and non-profit organisations along the North Wales coast and in rural parts of Conwy and Denbighshire, Wendy Jones Chief Officer of CVSC joins me to talk about the emergency grant funds which are now becoming available.

Thanks to the quick action of Innogy Renewables, the organisation behind the Gwynt-y-Mor and Clocaenog Forest Community Funds and CVSC, an immediate response fund has been set up.

Grants are available to help volunteering at this difficult time and also provide financial help to promote projects that can provide a lifeline to communities, in particular vulnerable people and the elderly who may have difficulty coping with isolation and maintaining their day-to-day lives.
