About The Platten Family Fund

The Platten Family Fund was established in 2014 with several generous donations from a Blyth-based family.

The Fund exists to support education and training projects, particularly around engineering, for the benefit of people living in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland.

Applications are invited from organisations seeking to provide STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities.

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.
