Rewarding youth groups in Tyne & Wear

Youth organisations in Tyne & Wear are eligible for a cash award thanks to the High Sheriff of Tyne & Wear Fund at the Community Foundation.

The awards scheme seeks to recognise and reward local organisations, big and small, which support children and young people in a safe and secure environment to develop confidence, build skills, find fun and friendship, and learn how to be a part of community life.

The High Sheriff of Tyne & Wear for 2017-18 is Lieutenant General Robin Vaughan Brims CB, CBE, DSO, DL.

The scheme complements the work of the High Sheriff, an unpaid voluntary role appointed by HM The Queen, which today concentrates on upholding and supporting the judiciary, police and law enforcement agencies, emergency services, local authorities and all recognised church and faith groups as well as supporting and encouraging the voluntary sector. The role itself is over 1000 years old from the days when the High Sheriff was responsible for all law and order in the County. It is the oldest secular appointment in the country. The High Sheriff of Tyne & Wear for 2017-18 is Lieutenant General Robin Vaughan Brims CB, CBE, DSO, DL.

The Fund is open for applications until 9am on 23 October 2017. Awards are presented at a celebratory event in March, ranging from £500 with a top award of up to £2,500.
