WEL would like to thank all of our funders for their generous support of the network. WEL currently receives funding from:
- WCVA, via the Partnership Capacity Building Fund (to support our role as representative network for the environmental voluntary sector on the Third Sector Partnership Council)
- Welsh Government
- WWF Cymru
- WWF UK (the UK Links receive funding from WWF UK each year, to cover the costs of joint working activities)
The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the Waterloo Foundation also continue to support the work of the WEL network by contributing funding towards three posts to work on Marine issues in the environmental NGO sector in Wales. These staff are employed by three of WEL’s member organisations and greatly improve the capacity of WEL’s Marine Working Group in its ability to positively influence Marine Act implementation in Wales.
A vital part of our funding each year (over £40,000) also comes from WEL members’ annual subscription fees.
