About the programme
- Join with other local businesses and help us address the employability and workforce issues which continue to hold our economy and communities back
- Help to fuel grants for local projects focused on education, training, skills gaps, and work-readiness
- Network with like-minded businesses and improve opportunities for people in the local community
- Have your contribution doubled by the matching funds of generous Community Foundation donors
The Community Accelerator Fund enables local businesses to come together and help develop the local workforce of tomorrow. Contributions to the fund will support projects dedicated to addressing skills gaps, employability, STEM education, and barriers to employment in communities across Tyne & Wear and Northumberland.
