Grants and Sponsorship

We aim to be more than a social landlord. We want to invest in the lives of our tenants and the local community in ways that will improve people’s quality of lives. This is the purpose of the Grant and Sponsorship Scheme.  Our award scheme is open for voluntary/community groups, social enterprises and charities to apply.


Funding opportunities

Our Grants scheme is split into 3 categories:

    1. Informal groups (such as a group of volunteers) – up to £500 in grant funding.
  • Constituted community groups – up to £5,000 in grant or £1,000 in sponsorship
  • Community not for profit businesses, social enterprises and charities – up to £5,000 in grant or £1,000 in sponsorship


There will be a maximum number of successful applications in the same financial year.

* There may be exceptional circumstances where this may change depending on need and relevance of the initiative. Please contact the Engagement and Ownership Team before completing your application.


Celebrating Success Grant

Up to £300

Eligibility Criteria:

National level of achievement or significant success across a range of activities including success in the community, in sport, in academic study and in the arts. The award would be open to any young person who lives (with parents or carers) in one of our rented properties).

* There may be other examples of national achievement that merit an award but are not in the above categories for example being the first person to climb a new route. In these cases the award would be at the discretion of the Chief Executive and the Chair of the Board.


Merthyr Valleys Homes will consider an application if the application complies with one or more of the following MVH corporate themes:
