Third Sector COVID-19 Response Fund - Memorandum
11 July 2022

Our memorandum focuses on the £41.79 million allocated by the Welsh Government during 2020-21 and 2021-22

We considered five questions:

  • Why in 2020-21 the Welsh Government provided the Third Sector in Wales with extra support – through greater flexibility over existing funding and also some new funding – to respond to the immediate challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • How much continuing support was provided during 2021-22 to help deal with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and increase Third Sector resilience;
  • How the Welsh Government administered its support;
  • How the Welsh Government balanced requirements to ensure public funds were managed properly with the need to respond quickly; and
  • How many organisations received support, for what activities, and whether initial evaluations indicate successful outcomes.
