North East Fund
The North East Fund asked for applications that promoted long-term change in communities that need it most by:
- Enabling homeless people or people at risk of homelessness to find a home.
- Providing opportunities for young people to secure sustainable employment.
- Creating and supporting community and social enterprises that bring money and jobs into a deprived community.
Since the launch of our North East Fund in 2015, 78 community organisations have been awarded 114 grants between £10,000 and £50,000. 43 awards have been made to organisations working with homeless people totalling £1,639,913, 50 awards have been made to organisations working with young people totalling £1,900,966 and 21 awards have been made to social enterprises totalling £727,159.
