Changes to WCVA Voluntary Services Emergency Fund

WCVA’s Voluntary Services Emergency Fund, which has awarded almost £7.5million to voluntary organisations in Wales, is changing to reflect the changing needs of the sector. New guidance on the re-opening of community centres will be circulated shortly.  The key changes are:

•          Community Centres will no longer need to seek approval from Welsh Ministers or Local Authorities to open. However, they will recommend informing the local authority of reopening.

•          Community Centres can open for fitness classes and specific guidance is available

•          The regulations on social gathering will still prevent some activities from taking place.
