Powys Community Enablement Support Fund

The main purpose of this fund is to support social and community development. Voluntary groups and organisations that demonstrate that they are properly constituted can apply for either 'Capital' or 'Revenue' grants.

In order to be as flexible as possible, Powys County Council does not have a prescriptive list of types of projects that they will fund as they hope to try and encourage creativity, innovation and development.

The Community Enablement Support Fund Grant Awards vary because of the type of project and other funding sources. Projects or activities from the Voluntary Sector would normally be restricted to a maximum grant of £15,000.

If you wish to apply, the Council strongly recommend that you contact the Community Grants Officer to briefly discuss your project prior to completing an application.

For more information and contact details visit Powys County Council's website.

Welsh Church Acts Fund

This fund makes grants under three main headings;

Community Groups and Organisations

Community Groups and organisations excluding salary and other employment related costs. Organisations must either be Powys based, or if of a national or regional character, must be able to demonstrate that the money requested will be used for a specific Powys based project.

Maximium grant will not exceed 15% up to a ceiling of £3,000 of total eligible estimated costs.

Churches and Chapels

Grants have been given to Churches and Chapels for many years. However this is to recognise their importance as historic buildings or as a major feature in the local environment and not as religious or denominational facilities. Grants are mainly given for repairs and restoration to the exterior of the main fabric of the building. Grants are not given for internal repairs.

Maximum grant will not exceed 10% up to a ceiling of £2,000 of total eligable estimated costs.


Individuals who are 25 years and under in the pursuit of excellence in areas such as sports, arts, volunteering.

Grant awards are not normally made to any specific percentage, but as a rule of thumb at approximately a 10% rate - minimum grant of £50, maximum grant £500.
