Garfield Weston Announcement

Community Music Wales (CMW) are happy to announce that they have been successful in their application to Garfield Weston Foundation for one year of core funding of £30,000. This will enable the development and implementation of three projects that will have a large impact on deprived communities across the whole of Wales.


CMW have identified three key areas they would like to focus on and use the opportunity to monitor the impact this work has on individuals and communities:
  • Refugee and Asylum Seekers.
  • Young people who are NEET.
  • People suffering from mental health issues.


With cuts to the arts and creative industries, it has become even more vital to demonstrate the long and short term impact this type of intervention can have, particularly on the well-being of our communities. CMW will use this grant to gather vital data and develop case studies and impact reports, supporting the work of the Arts Council of Wales to ensure the future of creative intervention for the most vulnerable in society.

We are hugely grateful to Garfield Weston Foundation and the support they have shown us and look forward to working with them in the future.
