The programme consists of an Equality Grant for representative organisations and Inclusion Projects for three specific areas of work. The programme will also support a representative organisation for disabled people by extending the grant funding for Disability Wales, which was due to end in 2019, to 2020.
The Grant is open to 3rd sector organisations, working individually or in collaboration, who represent equality for Race, Gender, and Gender Re-assignment and Sexual Orientation (LGBT+). Details of how to apply can be found in the application form and application guidance.
The Inclusion Projects will be awarded funding via procurement exercises that will be open for bids in September 2016. The projects to be funded will support Gypsy, Roma and Travellers, Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers, and tackling Hate Crime. Further details of these projects will be made available in September when the bidding process will open on Sell2Wales.
