The Northumberland Village Homes Trust Fund supports organisations working to relieve poverty, distress, and sickness amongst children and young people under the age of 21, living in Tyne & Wear, Northumberland, County Durham and Tees Valley.
Organisations of any size are invited to apply for a grant of between £750 and £5,000 for this type of work. Applications for project, capital, running, and core costs are welcome.
Although this is a rolling programme, applications will be considered by the Fund Advisors every other month, starting in January 2022, so please plan well in advance if you are applying for activities that are scheduled to occur at a particular point in time (e.g. half-term holiday trips).
Please be aware that this rolling programme will be trialled until summer 2022. The Fund will not support any request for funding for items that are deemed to be the responsibility of statutory services in any circumstances, in line with the grant-making policies of the Community Foundation. Social enterprises, community interest companies, and other non-charities should also take careful note of our application guidance notes.
