GVS COVID-19 Support

In our role as the County Voluntary Council for the Vale of Glamorgan we are concentrating our efforts on being the conduit between support offered and support needed, whilst supporting organisations, some newly formed, with their governance and planning. All staff are currently working from home so please bear with us

Directory of Third Sector Services:

This briefing provides information about third sector front line services, and helplines, which can support people during the Covid-19 crisis. It also includes information about other services and community hubs. These services may change as the situation develops. In addition, they are reliant on staff and volunteers, and may not be able to respond to all requests for support. Frequent updates will be provided as and when GVS becomes aware of services.


COVID-19 Funding

The list below contains information on funding schemes that have been set up in response to the covid 19 outbreak. We will update this page as we become aware of additional funds: https://www.gvs.wales/support-for-groups/gvs-covid-19-response/covid-19-funding

Please be aware that there are other funding bodies that continue to offer grants. If you would like us to conduct a funding search on your behalf, please complete an online funding request.
