The CAVO Small Grant Scheme

The CAVO Small Grant Scheme supports projects in Ceredigion that build stronger communities, support volunteers, improve rural and urban environments or re-engage people with community activity. You can apply for up to £2,000 with a simple, one-page application form. Projects must be completed by the 31st of March 2022.

If your project benefits the people of Ceredigion, get in touch to discuss your ideas!

Either download the application form and send it to gen@cavo.org.uk or give us a call on 01570 423232.

If your project isn’t suitable for the Small Grant Scheme, we will help you find other sources of funding.

The Caring Communities Innovation Scheme

The scheme is calling for innovative project ideas in Ceredigion that pilot ways of building community capacity and resilience in order to develop integrated service and support for:

  • Frail and older people with complex needs and long-term conditions, including dementia;
  • People with learning disabilities;
  • Children with complex needs; and
  • Carers, including young carers

The Scheme will consider funding 100% of project costs up to £20,000. The funding is primarily for revenue costs. It must be demonstrated that any capital costs included are critical to the success of the project. All projects supported must be completed by the 31st March 2022.

We’re always looking for projects to fund so get in touch today to discuss your ideas!
