Our funders

The Wales Co-operative Centre is mainly funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Welsh Government, with additional funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the Nationwide Foundation.

We would like to thank our funders for their generous support which enables us to help make Wales a better, fairer, more co-operative place for everyone.

The ERDF aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting imbalances between its regions.

The Welsh Government provides a range of grant schemes to deliver its policies and create a fairer, more prosperous Wales.

Big Lottery Fund is the largest community funder in the UK. Each year they distribute millions of pounds of The National Lottery’s good causes money to community groups and charitable projects around the country.

As an independent charity, Nationwide Foundation influence changes to improve circumstances for those people in the UK who most need their help.

They tackle the root causes of social problems. Key to their approach is focussing on the legacy that is created, so that many more people will be supported in the future as a result of their intervention now.
