Due to the current advice on the Coronavirus we’ve taken the decision to close our offices. However, all of our staff have been equipped to work from home and we’re still here doing everything we can to support voluntary organisations during this difficult time.

We’re currently suspending all face-to-face training and events, but will continue to deliver online learning where possible.

About us

As the national membership body for voluntary organisations in Wales, WCVA exists to enable voluntary organisations to make a bigger difference together.


It’s more important than ever that voluntary organisations have the skills and tools they need to find funding and diversify their income. In 2018-19 WCVA distributed around £11.5m in funding to charities, social enterprises and volunteers in Wales. 

Iour funding section you’ll find information on WCVA’s funding schemes, along with everything you need to help you search for and maintain funding for your cause.

Training, events and awards

Our training, events and awards bring voluntary organisations in Wales together to learn, connect and demonstrate the difference we make. Our training is focused on the needs of voluntary organisations. We can help you and your organisation run more effectively and develop your skills, knowledge and confidence. 

We also host a variety of events for voluntary organisations including gofod3 (the biggest event of its kind in Wales), our Annual Lecture and AGM, and the Welsh Charity Awards.
