The fund supports organisations working with young people in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham, including Darlington, and applications are welcomed as follows.
In all cases, applicants must be able to demonstrate how their projects will make a difference to the lives of young people while meeting wider Community Foundation aspirations of supporting people to overcome disadvantage, creating stronger communities and making our area a good place to live.
Projects previously supported by the Wellesley Trust Fund include general youth provision, uniformed groups activity, specialist skills and employability support, and work with specific groups of young people (e.g. disabled young people, or those with mental health problems). Both revenue and capital projects can be considered.
Applicants should read the general Community Foundation criteria at http://www.communityfoundation.org.uk/apply/ before applying.
The deadline for both types of application is Monday 5th February 2018, 9.00am.
