About The Cedarwood Trust

The Cedarwood Trust is a community development charity working on the Meadow Well Estate of North Tyneside a community full of untapped energy and creativity which is hampered by the levels of poverty and income deprivation it experiences. We believe that the community have the resources themselves to make a lasting difference and we work to raise confidences and aspirations in order to change lives.

Much of our work is focused upon those experiencing the highest levels of poverty including over 60’s and young families.

The Meadow Well Estate is often seen, from the outside, in negative terms, particularly relating to income deprivation and poverty – these are major challenges for us all at the Cedarwood Trust but we aim to also celebrate all that is good within the Meadow Well Estate.

We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.

The Cedarwood Trust is a company limited by guarantee and its governing document is its memorandum and articles of association.
