One area of funding that is sometimes overlooked can be the funding that is available locally. These funders are an important consideration for funding local branches of national organisations who can find it difficult to access national pots of funding, as well as for funding a wide variety of local groups.

Caring Communities Innovation Grant Scheme new funding round confirmed 2016/ 17

The funding for continuation of the Caring Communities Innovation Grant Scheme has now been confirmed for 2016/17.

Application packs will be available from the PAVS Learning and Development Team in January 2016.  Submission deadline to be confirmed as soon as the paperwork has been finalised.

This scheme is administered by PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services), and is funded through the Welsh Government's Intermediate Care Fund (ICF), managed by Hywel Dda University Health Board and Pembrokeshire County Council

In Pembrokeshire, the ICF is being used to pump-prime preventative community-led innovative initiatives, which can evidence positive outcomes for older people based on identified local need.

Intermediate Care Fund Prioirities

Projects will need to contribute to the following key objectives of the scheme:

• To develop locally led innovative projects based on local need

• To improve care co-ordination between social services, health, housing, third and independent sectors, to focus on preventative care and to avoid unnecessary hospital admission or delayed discharge

• To improve the resilience of local communities and their ability to support frail, older people to access and enjoy their normal network of community and family relationships

Innovative community-led projects being run by local groups will be prioritised. Applications for a contribution to a larger-scale project will only be considered if the Caring Communities Innovation Grant is for a discrete, identified element of activity.

Will fund:

  • mainly revenue for projects that build community capacity and resilience in order to help older people stay healthy and live independently within their communities

All grants will need to be spent by the end of March 2017.

Express an interest in receiving an application pack once finalised, please contact the Third Sector Support Team on 01437 769422 or development@pavs.org.uk
