Grants for Small Charitable Organisations Working in Disadvantaged Neighbourhoods (North East of England)

Round 4 of the Greggs Foundation North East Core Funding programme is now open for applications.

The North East Core Funding programme makes grants to charitable organisations based in the North East of England who make a difference to people in need especially those who are disadvantaged and excluded.

The programme aims to help charities in the North East of England to thrive and to make a lasting difference by making grants that increase the capacity of the organisation to provide quality services.

Around £600,000 per year is donated to charities in the North East through this programme.

Not for profit organisations with a turnover of less than £300,000 who work in the counties of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham and Teesside are eligible to apply and may do so every 12 months.

Grants can cover the core revenue costs of organisations working in disadvantaged neighbourhoods for example, running costs (bills etc), and core salaries (managers or administrators rather than project workers or sessional staff).

The Foundation prefers to support existing work with a proven track record that targets the following priority groups:

• People with disabilities

• Homeless people

• Voluntary carers

• Older and isolated people.

Grants of up to £15,000 per year are available for a maximum of three years.

Organisations interested in applying are advised to contact the grants manager before submitting an application.

Apply by the 18th September 2018. Useful Links: Greggs Foundation Video
