The combined Children and Families Organisation Grant (CFOG) scheme will provide up to £4m funding to all-Wales voluntary sector organisations. The funding is being made available under a new two-year grant round from 2012-2014, which has opened for bids.
Gwenda Thomas said:
“The third sector needs to respond to the challenges we face in these times when we are all experiencing reduced budgets. The changes to Children and Families Organisation Grant funding requirements are aimed at ensuring that voluntary organisations support the Welsh Government’s priorities for social services and improving the lives of all children in Wales.
“We want to encourage innovative and collaborative ways of working that ensure resources are best employed and we think the changes we have made to this scheme will help voluntary sector organisations achieve this.”
