Since restrictions were imposed at the end of March, like many organisations Radio Glamorgan has had to adapt due to the access to our studios within the heart of the Heath Hospital not being possible.
A few weeks ago, we applied for a small grant to cover the cost of USB microphones due to volunteers not having the ability to use our fully equipped studio. We were delighted to be told that we had been successful!
The microphones that have been distributed will give volunteers a voice to be able to present their shows from home.
Established in 1999, ‘Community Foundation Wales’ awards grants of over £2.6 million each year to charities and community groups.
There are over 30,000 community groups and charities in Wales working to improve and develop their communities, using their initiative to meet local needs. These groups and charities understand the challenges faced by people in their community and know how best to tackle these barriers.
This vital work is often carried out on a shoestring budget or voluntary basis so they focus on finding these fantastic projects and organisations, understanding what they are trying to accomplish and supporting them to do so.
The Wales Coronavirus Resilience fund has been established to assist groups and organisations that are adapting their services and support to individuals and families, whether singly or collectively, affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Charities, constituted community groups, social enterprises and community/town councils running activities to support the community through the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic in Wales can apply.
We’ll be posting on our social media accounts (@radioglamorgan) as to when you can hear volunteers presenting their programmes.
