About Northumberland High Sheriff Awards Fund

The Northumberland High Sheriff Awards Fund makes awards to community youth projects and other similar not for profit organisations which engage young people aged 10 to 25 in constructive and developmental activities, encourage their personal development, and deter them from anti-social activities. It also acknowledges the work of volunteers and encourages the development of young volunteers.

Please note: There will only be one round of applications for this fund in 2024 / 2025 with awards announced in January / February 2025.

Award winners are encouraged to attend a presentation event in March 2025 to celebrate the work of young people in Northumberland.

Who can apply?

Awards are made to voluntary and community groups and registered charities based and working in Northumberland. An application could be for a specific project, to purchase equipment, or towards the core costs of your organisation.

The application should explain what the organisation does to steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour and should also demonstrate how the young people are encouraged to be good citizens, either by volunteering, fundraising or engaging positively in their club and community. It also recognises work to support young people overcome personal challenging lifestyles or turn their back on negative behaviour as a result of engaging with the group.
