Imagine a day when...

…you didn’t see anyone,

…no one called in,

…no one phoned, or emailed or texted or Tweeted or Facebooked you

…you had no contact with anyone else from getting up to going to bed

…you were constantly worried about food, heating, money and your safety

Now… imagine that the next day was the same, and the next and the next….

This is the reality for over 5000 older people in Northumberland.

 

Age UK Northumberland is the largest Charity in our County focused on improving the lives of older people in Northumberland.  In 2017 we;

  • delivered over 390,000 care hours
  • provided over 4,000 day care services and meals
  • provided over 40 exercise classes per week, helping over 11,000 people to keep fit

We are keen to add to our dynamic and committed Board and would particularly welcome more Trustees with a variety of skill sets and experiences from home care, medical and NHS backgrounds

The Board meets 4-5 times per year and Trustees are invited and encouraged to support one of our Sub-Committees.

Northumberland County Council is conducting a consultation with regard to reducing the level of council tax support for working age claimants in Northumberland.  

The consultation states that the council has a difficult financial situation to manage over the coming years and must make substantial savings of around £36m.  they have suggested that a small part of these savings could come from reducing the amount of financial help provided to residents on low incomes through the Council Tax Support Scheme.  Currently, of the 15,425 working age claimants in Northumberland, 12,010 receive 100% support and currently have no bill to pay.  If proposals are agreed they would affect all claimants. Almost every other local authority in the region has reduced its Council Tax Support in recent years at varying levels and if approved, Northumberland’s would be one the of smallest reductions in the North East.  It would also be one of the smallest Council Tax reductions in the whole country. 

The deadline for taking part in the consultation is 2nd November.

Community Foundation

 

In an ideal world, charities would continue for generations providing vital services and activities to support those most in need and enrich local communities. However, there are occasions where a charity has no choice but to close, a decision which is never taken lightly by its Trustees. In these situations there are often some funds left over which may be able to be distributed to its beneficiaries. If this is not possible an alternative is to pass the funds to the Community Foundation. There are a number of options to consider and the Foundation can advise on the best option with the outgoing trustees to reflect the charity’s legacy: 

 

  • Vital community funds tackle the region’s most pressing needs now and in the future. We also have dedicated area funds that support groups in each of Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

 

 

  • Named ‘field of interest’ funds support a particular place or cause but without the donors being hands on as we select groups that match the donors’ interests. These funds start at £25,000 for endowment or £10,000 for an annual* fund.

 

  • If the outgoing trustees want to nominate fund advisors to recommend grants from shortlists provided by the Foundation, and there is at least £50,000 to give, then a named ‘panel advised’ endowment fund can be set up or £30,000 for an annual* fund.

 

(*Annual funds are spent out over a year or an agreed period of time)
