The Wales Africa Hub’s new grants scheme totals £180,000 per year, including a minimum £50,000 per year ring-fenced for health activities. This scheme will enable groups throughout Wales to access funding for small-scale Wales-Africa projects. This replaces funding previously available through Wales Africa Community Links, Fair Trade Wales and the Wales for Africa Health Links grants scheme.

The 2015/16 round of funding will open on 1st June 2015 and applications for project and partnership grants must be submitted by 15th July 2015.  Application forms must be completed in full and submitted with the supporting documents required as detailed in the application forms. All forms must be received by email or hard copy by the deadline. Applications may be made for funding over one, two or three years. All funds for each year of funding must be spent by 31st March of the funding year.

The grant assessment and award process for applications between £1000 and £15,000 will be:

  1. Applications screened by Wales Africa Hub staff to confirm eligibility

  2. Applications assessed by a grants panel

  3. The outcome of the application will be either a) agreement to full funding, or b) offer of partial funding, or c) offer of funding on set conditions, or d) rejection

  4. Outcome letters sent

  5. Successful applications will be sent a grant offer letter with full terms and conditions (including reporting requirements) and must be signed and returned by the specified deadline before funds can be released. 

There will be an on-going assessment process for small-scale activity grants and applications may be submitted up to December 31st for the 2015 pot.​
