NCC Community Chest
Voluntary and community groups across the south east of the county that are in need of financial assistance, are being invited to apply for funding from Northumberland County Council’s community chest fund.
Grants are available for a wide range of community projects including community building improvements and the purchase of equipment.
There is an upper limit of £5,000 per grant with a maximum award of 75% of the costs eligible for funding under the scheme.
For countywide initiatives the upper limit is £10,000, subject to the same 75% maximum of eligible costs.
The deadline for the next round of funding is January 31, 2020
LA 6 - ESF Community Grants
Gateshead Council learningSkills have been awarded the ESF contract to distribute £1million of Community Grants across Tyne and Wear and Northumberland. Any third sector organisation (voluntary, community, registered charities, social enterprises, mutual and co-operatives) can apply for a Grant.
Organisations can apply for a grant of up to £20,000 to work with people 16 years of age or older to help them move closer to the labour market. They are looking for innovative projects that push the boundaries in engaging those furthest away from accessing provision and main stream services. The funding can also include development funding for your own organisation.
In the previous LA7 programme we have been made aware that Northumberland didn't spend its indicative allocation, so this presents a good opportunity for organisations.
The deadline for the first round is 5.00pm on 11th January 2020
