About The Curtin PARP Fund

The Curtin PARP Fund supports individuals in Tyne and Wear and Northumberland to realise their potential. The fund particularly prioritises support for carers of all ages, women and girls, Black and Minority Ethnic people including those with asylum seeker/refugee status, disabled people, homeless people and people who are experiencing disadvantage that prevents them from realising their potential.

Grants for people who wish to study or develop a career in environmental/green jobs (e.g. horticulture, parks and gardens, sustainable energy) are also a priority.

Grants are awarded with the condition that evidence of attendance and progress/completion is provided for each year of study. One-off grants of between £500 and £1,000 help remove barriers to employment e.g., travel costs or work-related equipment. Grants of up to £5,000 support activities that benefit groups of people e.g. for the delivery of training courses.
