Joint Welsh Assembly Government and Equality & Human Rights Commission Capacity
Building Fund:

This new small grants scheme has been established by the Welsh Assembly Government
on a joint/matched funding basis with the Equality and Human Rights Commission, to
support capacity development in the third sector in Wales. A total grant fund of
£50,000 is available, with each payment limited to a maximum of £5,000 per
organisation. The programme will consider applications from those wishing to work
together in increasing awareness of equality and human rights issues. Proposals for
initiatives which will strengthen the governance of organisations will be
particularly welcome. Eligible project costs may include: staff costs (salaries and
office overheads); volunteer costs (travel, lunch, expenses, training);
operational/activity costs (equipment or venue hire, food, refreshments, childcare);
and publicity costs (publicity material, information and websites). Third sector
organisations located in Wales may apply. The deadline for receipt of applications
is 17 December 2010.
