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. The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting applications from organisations working to increase the supply of good quality, affordable rented properties.
- 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 50 community organisations have been awarded grants of between £16,830 and £50,000. 18 organisations working with homeless people have received £751,883, 19 youth work organisations have received £738,367 and 13 social enterprises have received £422,349.
