The next funding fair has been organised for Thursday 25th October at Berwick Rugby Club . Appointments will run from 1pm until 4:30pm.

We have a great line up of 9 funders due to attend that can provide grants from a few hundred pounds up to half a million for a wide range of community based projects. The funding fair is open to community and voluntary organisations that are based or operate in any part of Northumberland.

The funders due to attend are:

  • BBC Children in Need
  • Big Lottery Fund
  • Community Foundation
  • Greggs Foundation
  • Sir James Knott Trust
  • LEADER Programme
  • NCC Community Chest
  • Northumberland National Park Authority
  • Rothley Trust

Details of these funders can be found in the directory. Additional funders may confirm attendance before the date of the event.

Meeting with funders is strictly by pre-booked appointment only. Each appointment is 10 minutes long and gives you the opportunity to discuss your project with the funder and then listen to any advice from them on making an application. It doesn't matter what stage you are at with planning your project, it could be a fully worked up proposal, an initial idea, extension of an existing project or core funds for your organisation.


Please complete a booking form and return it to Marc Johnson by 9am on Thursday 18th of October 2018 at the latest.

Early Bird Booking - the first 10 booking forms received will be guaranteed their top three choices (as long as the projects are eligible)
