Welsh Broadcasting Trust

Invitation for Partnership Development 2019


The Welsh Broadcasting Trust is a registered charity, established to promote and support educational activities in relation to television, film, radio and new media.  Its aim is to expand and enrich the range of skills and experience of media professionals of the future; offer practical opportunities for newcomers and facilitate access to the media for communities.

Ymddiried is keen to expand its reach by taking the opportunity of developing strategic partnerships with other organisations operating in the creative industries in Wales, by providing funding that will add value to new or existing projects or activities. It is not the Trust’s wish or intention to fund any activity in its entirety.



Duration of activity:

Consideration will be given to one-off projects or longer term activities.  It is our intention to agree funding by mid January 2019, and it is anticipated that the projects will start anytime from February 2019 until September 2019.  For longer term or repeat activities and events funding may be available until March 2020.

Total funding available:

The total amount of funding that can be applied for in this round is £20,000.  The minimum amount of funding for any single project is £5,000 and the maximum is £20,000.  All costs must be inclusive of VAT if applicable.


The Trust welcomes applicants from a broad range of organisations including community groups and the third sector, schools, colleges and training providers as well as small to medium sized enterprises. Projects that demonstrate a strong partnership approach will be particularly welcome. Funding for student films as part of a degree or a post graduate course will not be considered.
