High Sheriff of Tyne & Wear Awards Scheme


Tyne & Wear High Sheriff’s Award Scheme makes annual awards in recognition of groups in the community who encourage useful and beneficial pursuits for young people. The fund is now open for applications. 

Who can apply

Awards are made to voluntary and community groups and registered charities working in Tyne & Wear.  The project must involve work with children and young people aged 10 to 25 years old.  The application must show what the organisation does to steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour.

Further details

The committee meet annually in December and we accept applications from September 1 2016 to October 28 2016. Applications received outside of these dates will not be considered. The Awards ceremony usually takes place in February or March. You do not need to ask for an amount of money. The Fund makes awards as a recognition of the achievements of projects, not grants for a particular piece of work.
