The Fund is a joint scheme supported by Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), Pembrokeshire County Council, West Wales Care Partnership and Welsh Government. There are two levels of funding available:

Supporting Community Action Fund – Micro Grant

** New priorities added:- wellbeing and community activities during the winter months.

The Micro Grants fund will provide up to 100% of costs to a maximum value of £500, and is a rolling programme, meaning that you can send in your application at any time. We aim to make decisions within 10 working days of receipt of your application.


Supporting Community Action Fund – Currently closed .

This round, with additional funding from Comic Relief is focussing on ‘Planning for the Future’,  and is about encouraging organisations to take those first steps towards regenerating community action, confidence and enjoyment, while observing health and safety guidelines. It is also about encouraging organisations to pilot innovative ways of supporting members and beneficiaries, building on lessons learned during the crisis.

It will provide up to 100% of revenue and capital costs to a maximum value of £2,500 for activity in one or both of the following themes:

Theme 1: Recovery: Moving Forward

For organisations who want to re-start activities or services and/or re-open buildings for members of the public.  This theme might include funding for PPE, signage, motion sensor fittings, deep cleaning, creating outdoor meeting areas, and so on.

Theme 2: Doing Things Differently

To develop great ideas, buy equipment or organise training for delivering services differently, resulting in a longer-term changed and/or added value strategy for the future.This theme will be of particular interest to organisations supporting vulnerable people who have delivered their services differently during lockdown and who plan to continue with these new models of service delivery longer term.

The fund is open to constituted voluntary and community groups and social enterprises with established governance structures. 

Currrently closed.
