Third Sector Grants 2024-25

The Neath Port Talbot Third Sector Grant fund is now open for applications for the financial year 2024-2025.

The council is offering the opportunity to third sector organisations to apply for 12 months funding to deliver activities, community projects or cover core costs.

The total amount available is £239,000 and organisations are asked to be mindful of the amount they will be applying for (as the total amount will need to be spread across several organisations that are successful). 

The closing date for applications is Friday 13th October 2023. 

Applications are invited that demonstrate:

  1. Contribution to the delivery of key policies and priorities which are contained in the council’s Strategic Change Programme 2023-2024 and overall Corporate Plan 2022-2027.
  2. Reducing the demand on council services. For example, promoting and assisting citizens to use the council’s digital services; promoting participation in discretionary services to increase footfall; or through early intervention and prevention activities that maintain or improve people’s well-being.
  3. Levering in of additional resources. Applications that demonstrate how council funding will be used to lever in additional resources in support of council policies and priorities are particularly welcomed.
  4. Financial sustainability. The council will wish to be satisfied that the applicant is not dependent on continuing council funding to achieve financial sustainability.

Applications may be submitted in Welsh and any application submitted in Welsh will be treated no less favourably than an application submitted in English.
