GRANT CRITERIA

The trustees will review all eligible grant requests that meet our criteria as set out below. However, we can only support a limited number of applications each year and the trustees will select those applications that they believe will provide the greatest benefit for the funding required. If you're not sure whether you meet our criteria, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and ask.

You must be:

  • A registered charity based in Northumberland or Tyne & Wear (not an individual) with a turnover of no more than £1m

  • Looking for a grant of between £500 and £25,000

The funding you are looking for must:

  • Be for the benefit of a number of residents of the North East that are disadvantaged by
    reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other socio-economic basis

  • Be for a planned project/spend - we will not fund anything retrospectively

  • Not be for a research project

  • Not be for the advancement or benefit of a religious or political cause


We prefer projects that:

  • Have an educational, environmental or sporting benefit

  • Deliver a long lasting impact on the people supported
