Grants of between £200 and £5,000 are available for small to medium-sized community projects that help a broader range of people to understand and look after the Carneddau. The fund is open to non-profit groups and organisations working with communities in and around the Carneddau area – including community groups, partnerships, third sector organisations and public bodies. 

Here is an opportunity to put ideas for pioneering and creative projects into action and to help people of all ages and backgrounds to discover, conserve and celebrate their local heritage. This could be through an art project, new and creative interpretation, virtual walks, online learning courses, welfare initiatives, and much more.

The recipients of the grants are decided by the Cronfa Gymunedol y Carneddau panel. This panel is made up of volunteers who live in the area and who are interested in contributing to the aims of the scheme together with representatives of the Carneddau Landscape Partnership .

How to apply

If you’re thinking of applying, get in touch with one of our Community Engagement Officers, Sophie or Tara. They can help you by discussing eligibility, supporting you with developing ideas and helping you understand the application form. 

Applications for grants under £1,000 can be submitted at any time and assessed by Sophie or Tara, our Community Engagement Officer. But with regards to grants over £1,000, they will be submitted for review to the Cronfa Gymunedol y Carneddau panel, who make the final decision on which projects to fund based on the Officers’ recommendations. The panel is made up of voluntary members of the community, who represent the wide-ranging interests of people who live, visit, or work in the landscape.
