Our Autism Awareness campaign is supported by an Autism Awareness Community Grant programme with DVSC managing the applications and distribution process.


Grants of between £1,500 - £3,000 are available to voluntary and community groups and third sector organisations in Denbighshire to deliver services and activities for adults with an Autism diagnosis, culminating in a celebration event hosted by DVSC at the end of all project activity. 

The community grant criteria will support the following:


  • piloting of a new service, such as a new self-help support group or a forum;


  • social inclusion services, such as the setting up of a new lunch club, sport club, exercise class, carer support, neighbour care, or a small scale community service in response to a need;


  • social inclusion to increase engagement of people with autism within service areas;

The Deadline for applications to this grant was the 31/10/18. Keep your eye on our Twitter and Facebook as we will be promoting the successful projects activities and events. 

We ask all award applicants to promote their work on social media, to share their information and learning materials bilingually with DVSC for us to promote and include in the online resources section,  and to provide a monitoring report on the activity / service itself for us to upload to the Impact section of this website. All paperwork linked to the funded activities should include DVSC's logo and that of the North Wales Integrated Autism Service.

Hello again … … today we have a small favour to ask. Volunteers, voluntary and community action and the third sector are at the heart of building more sustainable and resilient communities and we need them more than ever.


DVSC receives core funding from the Welsh Government but we need to raise more money so that we can continue to provide excellent sector support - whether you're a volunteer,  voluntary and community group or a third sector organisation.


We can provide a wealth of information and resources and we want to keep our services as accessible as we can, and to reach as many groups as we can.  So we think it’s fair to ask people who visit us often for their help - if they feel able to give it.


Our Sector Support service is resource intensive, but we are investing in it because we believe providing support to volunteers, voluntary and community groups, charities, social enterprises and community interest companies - has to be at the heart of what we do. If you like what we are about, and you want to help support it, our future would be much more secure.
