Big changes start locally

North East Fund

Making big changes happen locally

The North East Fund asks for applications that promote long-term change in deprived communities in the North East of England by:

  • Providing opportunities for young people to secure sustainable employment.
  • Enabling homeless people or people at risk of homelessness to find a home. We are particularly interested in supporting applications from organisations working to increase the supply of good quality, affordable rented properties.
  • 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.

We expect the next round of the North East Fund to launch in Spring 2017.
