Building cohesive communities with new grant scheme

Share this article

A new grant scheme to help build cohesive and resilient communities has been launched.

Community groups and third sector organisations across Cardiff are invited to apply for funding up to £2,000 to support schemes and initiatives that highlight and celebrate the diversity of communities across the city.

Funding can be used for a range of purposes, including holding events and activities, producing supportive literature or building capacity within a community.

Cabinet Member for Tackling Poverty, Equality and Public Health (Public Health & Equalities) Cllr Julie Sangani, said: “We’re looking for schemes that focus on bringing communities together and are encouraging collaborative work.

“The aim of the scheme is to ensure people from different backgrounds in our communities have positive relationships, have a sense of mutual respect and feel safe in their neighbourhoods.

“We’re keen to hear from groups and organisations about the creative ways they want to do this in their communities. It could be about promoting cultural diversity, bringing people together in  cooking sessions, making community music, arts-based projects, sports, dance and more.”

Applications must meet a range of a least one of the following objectives:

  • Celebrating diversity
  • Hate crime awareness.
  • Countering harmful narratives
  • Reducing community tensions.
  • Community capacity building.
  • Communities working together to support community cohesion.
  • Promoting equality across all protected characteristics within the Equality Act 2010.
  • Promoting community cohesion as outlined in the Future Generations Act (A Wales of cohesive communities – Attractive, viable, safe and well-connected communities).
  • Celebrating a significant equality event

In exceptional circumstances, applications for funding up to £5,000 will be considered.

The deadline for applications is Friday June 30. Decisions will be made by a panel by July 14, 2023.
