WRAP Cymru says a hike in its funding from the Welsh Government reflects the organsation’s “outstanding track record” in Wales.
WRAP’s operation in Wales is to receive nearly £9.5m of the £22m package which covers the next 30 months, an increase of more than 40% on the equivalent grant of £2.7m for 12 month period 2014-2015.
The funding covers WRAP Cymru’s core activity and does not include its work with local authorities as part of the Collaborative Change Programme or the Resource Efficient Wales business and public sector client manager services delivered in partnership with the Carbon Trust.
WRAP chief executive Liz Goodwin, left, said she was “delighted”.
“This funding increase is testament to the skills and experience of the WRAP Cymru team and the staff throughout WRAP who contribute to our work in Wales.
“It is a direct result of our outstanding track record of delivering behaviour change while offering excellent value for our funders. It is also indicative of the size of the Welsh Government’s ambition to create a truly circular economy.”
Goodwin said WRAP Cymru was developing an “ambitious” programme of interventions which would be unveiled at the WRAP Cymru conference in Cardiff in October.
