UK Shared Prosperity Funding

North Tyneside Council secured £1.5 million of funding that organisations in the North West of the Borough were invited to bid for. The project is funded by the Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund through the North of Tyne Combined Authority and is now administered by the North East Combined Authority.

The UK Shared Prosperity Funding (UKSPF) was made available to any voluntary and community sector organisations, including individual resident’s groups or youth organisations that provide services in the following wards:

  • Camperdown
  • Weetslade
  • Longbenton

The funding on offer ranged from large-scale projects to smaller grants for individual residents and residents’ organisations. North Tyneside Council is the lead organisation and is partnering with North Tyneside VODA to deliver the programme.

The larger Community Partnership Fund and the Community Youth Fund closed for applications on 17 November 2023. However, the Small Grants Fund is open until December 2024. Medium Grants coming soon. 

All funding must be spent by February 2025.
