The grants will only cover 75% of the total cost, so match funding is essential.
Please note, the maximum of £ 1,000 can only be awarded once in a 2 year period. Successful applicants must wait 12 months before reapplying.

For more information or for advice or support, please contact: Heather Hicks at email: heather.hicks@flvc.org.uk or visit the Flintshire Voluntary Council website
