Community Ventures and sector support

Community Ventures is a Community Foundation project that provides in-depth support to voluntary organisations in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, helping them to be as effective, responsive and resilient as possible. Our Community Ventures experts work, pro bono, with organisations over a sustained period of time, usually up to a year, to help them identify challenges and opportunities, embed new practices, and think afresh about their role and relationship with beneficiaries.

With the support of the Garfield Weston and Esmée Fairbairn Foundations, we are also brokering and building additional non-financial support for the sector, particularly around governance, business planning and income generation. To find out more about current opportunities click here.
