Support for the Sector

Financial support

If you represent an organisation that looks after a historic building or heritage attraction that is still closed to the public or is just preparing to welcome its first visitors after lockdown, we understand that you will be worried about the many challenges that you face after months of closure.

Financial support is available to help organisations survive this difficult period of uncertainty and income loss.

Third Sector Resilience Fund

The WCVA is working with the Welsh Government to help voluntary organisations stay in business, and has introduced the third sector resilience fund for Wales to provide cash flow support to help organisations through the current crisis. The fund is designed to support those voluntary sector organisations that need financial support primarily because of a fall in their fundraising and donation income, rather than because of a loss of trading income.

Architectural Heritage Fund

The Architectural Heritage Fund is a registered charity that promotes the conservation and sustainable reuse of historic buildings for the benefit of communities across the UK. It provides advice, information and financial assistance in the form of early project grants and loans for projects undertaken by charities and not-for-private profit organisations. It has produced a useful guide to support available to charities and social enterprises during COVID-19.
