The Renew Wales programme has finally come to an end after ten years of supporting communities across Wales to take steps to tackle climate change and become more sustainable.
We want to give a huge thanks to everybody who was involved for engaging with the programme, and we wish you all the best in all your endeavours in these particularly challenging times.
Renew Wales was a programme led by the Development Trusts Association (DTA) Wales and funded by the Dormant Assets Scheme, administered by the National Lottery Community Fund.
DTA Wales is excited to announce that, along with partners EYST (Ethnic Minorities and Youth Support Team Wales), Severn Wye Energy Agency and Co-Production Network Cymru, we are planning to launch a new seven-year mentoring programme which focuses on climate action and sustainability, unlocking the collective capabilities of communities in Wales.
This seven-year programme will build on a decade’s experience of delivering the Renew Wales programme and will reflect the ever more pressing challenges we face now and in the coming decade. Climate change and sustainable living has become a matter for everyone, not the committed few. We have just a few short years to animate and enable a community movement within Wales taking direct action on the climate crisis.
The new programme, yet to be publicly named, is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund’s “Sustainable Steps Wales” grant scheme which is funded via the Dormant Assets Scheme.
We are due to go live in February 2023, so stay tuned.
