About the fund
The Community Foundation set up the Cost-of-Living Fund in autumn 2022 to support charities and community organisations in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland so they can help the people most affected by the cost-of-living crisis. Our focus is on helping small, local organisations that are facing greater demand on their services at the same time as rising costs.
The first round of funding was agreed in December 2022. The second round was an open call with grants made in March 2023. There may be further rounds but in the meantime if you work for or know an organisation that needs support you can make a general application to us at any time. We are seeking to raise awareness of the issues local organisations are facing with policy- and decision-makers here and nationally.
