Sharing the risk, sharing the reward

We have now opened the application process for the Community Asset Development Fund. Before completing the application you will need to have an initial conversation with the Social Investment Cymru team (, 0300 111 0124) in order to determine your readiness to apply.


Due to the amount of interest we've received for the Community Asset Development Fund within East Wales and the amount we have available; 

the fund will now be a competitive application process 

The timeline is as follows; 

  • 8 February 2019 - Deadline for submitting Eligibility Questionnaire (EQ)
  • 12 March 2019 - Deadline for submitting Financial Assistance Application (FAA)
  • 12 April 2019 - We envisage applications being presented to panel for a decision on this date, however, this may be subject to change.  We will communicate a date to all East Wales CADF applicants once this is confirmed. 

*the sooner you submit your complete EQ, the sooner we'll be able to assess the application, communicate with you regarding any enquiries we may have, and approve the EQ.  This will allow you more time to complete the Financial Assistance Application process. 


The information relating to the application will be collated and presented to the panel who will decide which projects to fund. 

If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact a member of the team on 0300 111 0124 


The application process is split into two stages:

1. Eligibility Questionnaire (EQ) - this determines your suitability for the fund and gathers required information about your organisation

2. Financial Assistance Application - if you pass the eligibility questionnaire you will need to complete a specific application form in response to an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Organisations that wish to submit an EQ will need to register on eTenderWales.

To access the EQ you may need some reference numbers which are as follows:

- The project code is 34425

- The PQQ/EQ code are 32647  (English) and 32649 (Welsh)

We have created some video guides to help you with the application process:
