Other than prioritising young or older people in North East England, we do not have any hard and fast rules about the kind of charitable project that we like to support.
We consider you the experts. Our role is to use our available resources to support you as best we can.
Below are some organisations and projects that we have recently supported.
If your organisation or project is nothing like those examples below, please do not be put off from applying.
These are just examples of the range of things we have funded – we look to you to tell us what we could do to support your organisation and the people it helps.
