Welcome to the Arts Council of Wales funding portal

Your first step is to make sure that you’re registered to use our new portal.

If you used our previous grants system to make an application you’ll already be in our new system. However, your new portal account may not be ‘activated’ yet. To help you with this, we’re sending out specific ‘redeem codes’ to those who’ve previously applied to us.  If you receive one of these you should use it to activate your account. In the case of organisations, these codes will be sent to the person identified in our records as the Chair of your organisation. 

If you haven’t received an invitation code and you’ve had a grant from us previously, get in touch and we’ll send you one. 

If you're an organisation and you haven’t previously registered with us, click here to create your account. 

Individuals who’ve applied to us previously will also get a ‘redeem code’ to start the registration process.   We’re sending these out step-by-step as grants funding programmes become available for application.  If we’ve not contacted you yet, we’ll be in touch soon.

If this is your first contact with us as an individual, click here to create your account. 

So what happens next?

If you've completed the activation process, and you've received confirmation your account is ready, click the sign button. 

Our website at www.arts.wales/funding has all the details and guidance about our grant schemes.
