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, 65 community organisations have been awarded 89 grants between £10,000 and £50,000. 34 awards have been made to organisations working with homeless people totalling £1,338,556, 37 awards have been made to organisations working with young people totalling £1,396,426 and 18 awards have been made to social enterprises totalling £639,689.
