The Welsh Government's Community Radio Fund offers funding to recognise the contribution made by community radio stations.
Grants of £5,000 and above are available to help run community radio stations which have been granted a five-year broadcast licence by Ofcom (the Office of Communications in the UK). There is no upper limit of grant.
Grants are awarded to help meet core running costs including the following:
- Financial management and reporting.
- Fundraising to support the station (grants and commercial funding).
- Community outreach.
- Volunteer organisation and support.
Stations must be run on a not-for-profit basis and have a social purpose, working to involve their target community in running the service.
The deadline for applications is 19 February 2013.
