Supports organisations working with young people in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham, including Darlington. In this round, the Community Foundation welcome applications from all organisations, regardless of whether they’ve received a grant from the fund in the past. Previous grantees are able to apply for projects of up to three years’ duration.
Projects previously supported by the Wellesley Trust Fund include general youth provision, uniformed groups activity, specialist skills and employability support, and work with specific groups of young people (e.g. disabled young people, or those with mental health problems). Both revenue and capital projects can be considered.
Grant size: £500 to £10,000 per year
Application process: Community Foundation website
Deadline: 9am on 5 February 2018
