The Dickon Trust Fund

The Dickon Trust Fund guidelines

The Community Foundation for Tyne & Wear and Northumberland is pleased to invite applications for the Dickon Trust Fund 2017-18 grants round.

The Fund will support registered charities and community groups involved in the North East of England (from the Tees in the South to Cumbria in the West).

It has broad criteria (see below) and grants of between £1,000 to £2,000 will be awarded. We are particularly keen to consider applications from smaller charities and organisations supporting young people, carers and smaller projects addressing disadvantage.

Areas for consideration:

General charitable purposes; education/training; advancement of health or saving of lives; disability; prevention of relief or poverty; accommodation/housing; amateur sport; economic/community development/employment; armed forces/emergency service efficiency. The Fund will not support churches, individuals or animal charities.
