Youth Led Grants (YLG)
We offer opportunities to 14-25 year olds in the form of our Youth Led Grant Panel, who meet regularly to decide which youth-based projects to award funding to, as well as receiving further training. If you know a young person who may be interested please contact us.
We are currently recruiting for the 2021/2022 Youth Led Grant panel – please contact our Volunteer Support Officer, Emma Morgan, by email: [email protected] or call 07973 725 690 if you are interested to join the panel.
Additionally, if you are running a youth-based project and looking for further funding, our Youth Led Grant is a pot of up to £6,200 to distributed among youth-led projects in Cardiff. Applications open from April every year and you can apply for a small grant up to a maximum £1,500 (a higher amount may be considered under exceptional circumstances)
C3Sc’s Third Sector Development Officers also offer advice and support for other funding opportunities, to set up and develop a new community group or organisation and or become a member of C3SC, visit our Support page for more information.
Do you want to volunteer in Cardiff?
The Cardiff Volunteer Centre @ C3SC (Cardiff Third Sector Council) is run by the community, for the community. The Centre acts as a central hub where anyone in Cardiff can find out about volunteering opportunities. We help people who want to volunteer and organisations recruiting volunteers to find the right opportunities.
C3SC is here to help you volunteer in your local community. We have hundreds of different volunteering opportunities with charities, community groups and statutory organisations across the capital. If you want to give back whilst being part of a movement to make a difference then we’re here to help.
There are two ways to access our service:
C3SC volunteering opportunities can be found on the Volunteering Wales website.

You can use the ‘Advanced Search’ option to define what type of volunteering you are interested in.
