Welsh Church Fund

The Welsh Church Act 1914 secured the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Wales and made provision for the funding of church projects. 

Newport City Council receives an annual allocation which can be awarded for a wide range of charitable objectives including educational, social, recreational and cultural purposes - the fund is no longer used exclusively for church projects.

The Guidance Note (pdf) explains eligibility.
