Aims and questions

The Wales Funders Forum is the membership network for funders and investors in Wales. Our mission is to strengthen and support funders, to promote effective funding practices and to learn about current and emerging issues to meet the needs of Wales.

We bring funders together to:

- Promote and share good funding practice

- Share learning about “what works”, “what doesn’t work” and why

- Share information and learning about evidence of need for funding

- Provide opportunities to discuss and debate developments in Wales that impact on funders and the organisations they fund

- Provide opportunities for funders to collaborate and network with each other

Our direction as funders now has more focus and momentum.
