COVID 19 Recovery Support Fund for BAME Community Groups

A growing body of data, including data from ONS shows that people who are Black, Asian and from minority ethnic (BAME) groups have been disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. BAME-led organisations have and still are playing a pivotal role in ensuring that vital emergency support reaches those from these hard-hit communities. This fund has been created to support those organisations that are led by and supporting Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) families and communities across Wales to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

*Please note that we define a BAME-led organisation under the following terms issued by the Race Equalities Funders Alliance:

  • The organisation’s mission and purpose is to benefit BAME communities.
  • The majority of the leadership (i.e. at least half of the senior team and the Trustee board) are from the BAME community(ies) that it serves

Grants of between £2,000 – £5,000 are available to be awarded to BAME-led* community organisations with an income of approximately £25,000 in the latest reported financial year.

This fund is open to applications until 12pm on Wednesday the 8th of June 2022. For more information and to apply, please visit: COVID 19 Recovery Support Fund for BAME Community Groups
