How CAVS can help
CAVS aims to support organisations to secure and generate the resources they need to grow, survive and be sustainable.
We can help organisations to develop and provide projects and services that effectively address identified needs, apply evidence-based solutions and best practice; and that encourage efficient and effective use of available resources and cross-sector partnership working.

- guidance on using the free funding website Funding Wales (see below)
- information on new funding opportunities through updates
- commenting on draft funding applications
