  • People in deprived areas
  • People in rural parts of west Cheshire

The projects supported by the programme during the first round have already made a real difference across west Cheshire.

Cheshire Buddies has been supporting a severely autistic and non-verbal young lady during a weekly group session.

She has been busy making three lovely pieces of pottery: an angel, plate and decorations. She loves the texture of the clay, making things and the whole experience has had a calming effect on her.

This is one of many funding pots managed by CWVA on behalf of local organisations and funders, levering much-needed funding into the community sector.

So far in 2024, CWVA has helped distribute almost £184,000 to community sector organisations working in a wide range of different areas.
