Aim of the Programme

This scheme is intended to support opportunities to be put in place locally to promote health, wellbeing and independence.  This revenue and capital Fund aims to support proposals for sustainable preventative initiatives which improve the quality of life for priority groups across Cardiff and the Vale by ensuring people are able to engage in their local community, develop or maintain their independence and access appropriate support at the right time.

We are looking to support proposals for NEW services or activities which respond to a need or a particular problem, build on community assets and maximise the impact of sustainable preventative services.  For example, you may wish to set up a new self-help group or forum, or a lunch or sport club, youth group, carers support group, neighbour support, provide information and advice, organise a special event or a community befriending service.
