£10,000 cost of living grants available to DTA Wales members

Date: 28.02.2023

Members of DTA Wales, as well as members of Locality, DTA Northern Ireland or DTA Scotland, can apply for a grant of £10,000 to help with the cost of living.

Locality is a partner for the 2022 Guardian and Observer annual charity appeal. Many community organisations are trying hard to support their communities through the cost of living crisis, while also facing increases in costs themselves. The generous donations of Guardian and Observer readers will help community organisations continue to provide the support that communities desperately need.

Organisations who are members of DTA Wales can apply. You’ll also need to:

  • have a turnover under £500k a year,
  • employ staff,
  • deliver services to support people affected by rising costs over the last year
  • either:
    • be working in an area in the lower two IMD deciles, OR
    • be supporting racially minoritised communities.

You can apply to cover running costs, existing activities, or new projects, as long as the work is helping people struggling with rising costs.
