August 2021

To all the small charities and voluntary groups we have supported over the years we hope that you have survived the worst of the problems caused by Covid 19 . Many of you were forced to go into hibernation, or have even closed your operations, while others have been operating at a reduced level  with some newly adapted and innovative ways of providing services and support to your communities. Although it is too soon to say we will be back to pre-Covid times in the very near future,  there are indications that the worst may be over. This is just a reminder that we are open to receive applications for grants provided you fit the criteria and operate in the area of East Newcastle City, Cramlington, Blyth, Ashington, SE Northumberland and North Tyneside Area. If, in the unlikely event you need to refresh your memories of how we operate the information is on the website. If you are in any doubt an email to : is always welcome.

For organisations who have not made applications previously, we suggest you check the section ‘Guide to Applicants’ but if you are not sure please email and I will get back to you asap.

We look forward to hearing from you. Remember this a family Trust, we can be flexible and always provide a quick turn round for all applications, whether successful or otherwise.

Best wishes and good luck.

John Hamilton
