How you can help
Use your reserves
If your church has reserves, now is the time to draw on them. They are there to provide a financial fall back and it is time to open our hearts, open the stores and give that what God has provided.
Sign up to Gift Direct
Encourage your congregation to sign up to the Church in Wales Gift Direct scheme. Gift Direct remains the best way for people to give regularly to the church.
grants and funding
Voluntary Services Recovery Fund (Welsh Govt)
The Voluntary Services Recovery Fund is available to all third sector groups, including faith groups. It aims to prevent inequalities which have arisen as a result of Covid-19 from becoming entrenched. It can fund recovery-focused community activity which is volunteer led.
Third Sector Resilience Fund (Welsh Govt)
The Third Sector Resilience Fund provides a mix of grant and loan funding for third sector organisations under three strands; survive, adapt and improve. It does accept applications from faith groups, however, due to the loan element, it may only be suitable for some groups. Applicants need to be incorporated organisations or prepared to incorporate before funding is finalised.
The Moondance Covid-19 Relief Fund
The Moondance Foundation Covid-19 relief fund has earmarked an additional £10 million in 2021 to distribute to Welsh charities and organisations who are supporting those struggling as a direct result of Covid.
