The North East Roots Fund has been launched to strengthen communities with the support of those who share a special passion for the region. We want to unite people and businesses behind a vision for a vibrant, competitive North East full of opportunity.
The initiative is for people with links to the area who would like to give back. You may have been born or educated, or have lived or worked, in the North East. Anyone who cares about the region and its people is welcome to get involved.
Through the North East Roots Fund, we aim to:
- Inspire people with a passion for the North East to give back
- Celebrate the global impact and success stories of people from the North East
- Address regional inequalities, build aspiration and create opportunity
- Promote, and rally behind, a vision of a thriving, beautiful and competitive North East
- Grow an active network motivated to unleash the region’s potential
