Stabilisation Fund for Organisations

For arts organisations working in the not-for-profit sector in Wales who are experiencing immediate financial difficulty due to Coronavirus.

This fund is to support arts organisations working in the not-for-profit sector in Wales who are experiencing immediate financial difficulty due to loss of income, as well as cashflow pressures resulting from the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority will be those organisations facing the most immediate and acute financial challenges.

Funding can be used to cover:

  • Activity intended to prevent your organisation from ceasing operation due to the financial impact of COVID‑19 emergency
  • the development and delivery of new activity not previously proposed and specifically designed to be achievable during the next six months

Our nation‑wide network of arts organisations are at the heart of cultural life across Wales.  Some organisations are members of our Arts Portfolio Wales, reflecting the year‑round nature of their activities. However, many more outside the Portfolio also play a critical role in providing opportunities for us to enjoy and take part in the arts.

Arts Portfolio Wales organisations and organisations outside the Portfolio will be able to apply for support.
