Invest to Save 2017
The Invest to Save (I2S) fund is a short-term pool of resources available to help public service organisations transform the way that they work.
The fund supports the introduction of new or proven ways of working so that public services become more efficient and effective.
Bids should be able to demonstrate:
- that they can identify and create cash-releasing saving
- deliver citizen-focused services
- support key aspects of the Welsh Government’s public service efficiency and wider improvement agenda.
Types of project
The types of projects supported in the past fall into the following categories:
- asset management
- business transformation
- new models of service delivery
Investments made from the fund are fully repayable, interest-free, with flexibility on the payback period. This ensures that the fund is sustainable and available for new projects in the future.

Rather than one annual bidding round, we will accept project proposals at any time throughout the year but based around 4 deadlines.

Green Growth Fund
The Invest to Save Green Growth Fund supports projects which contribute to the Welsh Government’s Energy Efficiency Strategy.
