The Wellesley Trust Fund

The Fund supports organisations working with young people in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham, including Darlington, and applications are welcomed as follows  

In this round, they welcome applications towards an organisations core services or to support one-year projects, though where a project is of a continuing nature, the panel may wish to select exceptional projects for multi-year support.  

Priority will be given to organisations with an annual income of up to £500,000.  

In all cases, applicants must be able to demonstrate how their projects will make a difference to the lives of young people while meeting wider Community Foundation aspirations of supporting people to overcome disadvantage, creating stronger communities and making our area a good place to live.  

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. Please note, if applying for a capital project please contact Pete Barrett at the Community Foundation before applying.
