Welsh Government’s Programme for Government includes a commitment to reduce the democratic deficit. It is their priority that registration numbers of newly enfranchised voters increases. This includes first time voters and voters from under-registered groups.
£100,000 is being made available to third sector organisations to support their work to improve voter registration. The funding is to benefit as many people in their target groups as possible.
The scheme is now open for applications. The deadline for applications is 10th December. To find out more please visit: https://gov.wales/third-sector-voter-registration-support-grant
They will be holding a ‘Meet the funder’ session on Friday 12 November. This will allow you to discuss any queries you have about the grant. If you would like to attend, please email: Etholiadau.Elections@gov.wales.
