The Strong Communities Grant Fund was launched in August 2017 and offers grants to community groups, the voluntary sector and Town and Community Council’s towards the cost of initiatives within the Vale of Glamorgan that help to support the Council’s vision of “ Strong Communities with a bright future”.  The Fund aims to improve the resilience of organisations/groups or their activities by funding projects that add value to their current work, can demonstrate longer term sustainability and reduce reliance on grant funding in the future.
