Sustainable Pembrokeshire Small grants scheme

closed - March 2008!

Following seven successful years of grant-giving, the Sustainable Pembrokeshire Small grants scheme has closed. Many groups throughout Pembrokeshire have carried out different projects bringing wide-spread benefits to communities across the county. 

The remaining funding was fully allocated in the final round of the scheme on the 13th February 2008. 

What was the Sustainable Pembrokeshire Small Grants Scheme?

The scheme was a local initiative to encourage the development of sustainable projects that help improve the quality of life for current and future generations. The capital/ revenue funding supported projects that focused on improving environmental, social, cultural and economic aspects of life.

The scheme was funded by the Welsh Assembly Governments' Community Facilities and Activities Programme.

Pembrokeshire KEYFUND - All grant funds committed

The Keyfund scheme came to an end in 2006.

    St. Teilo's Church Hall


   St. John's Community Hall

Ending in 2006 the Keyfund has committed all of the £368,125 available to support community led projects in the five targeted wards.

Forty-six grass roots projects have been supported in all, a success story that would not have been possible without the active support and partnership of local community members, community councils, PLANED, Pembrokeshire County Council and PAVS.

Awards in the last round included:

St Dogmaels Village Hall
Sand Palace Arts
Nevern Agricultural & Horticultural Society
St Teilo's Church Hall
Monkton Priory Church
Nevern Village Hall
Pater Hall Trust
Age Concern Pembrokeshire

The Pembrokeshire Keyfund was funded by the European Union European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the National Assembly of Wales' Local Regeneration Fund.

So what was the Pembrokeshire Keyfund?

The Objective 1 programme targeted five wards in Pembrokeshire for additional support to help them tackle deprivation and/or peripherality.

  • Maenclochog Ward
  • St. Dogmaels Ward
  • Pembroke Dock Central Ward
  • Pembroke Monkton Ward
  • Pembroke Dock Llanion Ward

In order to simplify the process of accessing the funds earmarked for these wards, PAVS in conjunction with other agencies introduced the Pembrokeshire Keyfund.

The Keyfund was able to support both the revenue (e.g. running costs) and/or capital (e.g. building works and equipment) costs of a project. In total £368,180 was available over the last 3 years. As this was a 100% grant scheme voluntary and community groups were not required to provide match funding.

This grant scheme for community led regeneration was managed by Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), working in partnership with representatives from Pembroke Dock Central, Pembroke Dock Llanion, Pembroke Monkton, Maenclochog, St Dogmaels, PLANED and Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC).
