Community cohesion

Tyne & Wear and Northumberland Community Foundation Grants

The Community Foundation Serving Tyne and Wear and Northumberland manages a variety of different funds. Funding is intended to support local groups who 'deliver valuable opportunities, support and help to the people in their communities' in Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.

The Community Foundation is particularly keen to support people who experience discrimination or disadvantage for whatever reason.

Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust

The Charity's origins go directly back to Bishop Vesey, a native of Sutton Coldfield who persuaded Henry VIII to grant a Charter in 1528 establishing a Warden and Society (Corporation) to govern the town. In 1886, the town became a Borough and Sutton Coldfield Charities was set up, taking over the various Corporation Charities within one body. This operated alongside the Council.

Stratford Town Trust

The Stratford Town Trust's mission is to support and enhance the quality of life of the people of Stratford-upon-Avon. To that end, its grants programme has given out £1 million a year since 2001 to a range of local good causes, community projects and things that make Stratford a better place to live, work and study.

Spelthorne Borough Council Grants

Spelthorne Borough Council wishes to assist the many organisations working within the Spelthorne area to meet the needs of the community.
Grants are available to local community organisations and individuals to fund sports, arts and leisure activities, as well as general charitable activities.

The Council has streamlined the application and allocation system for grants; all applications will now be considered by a panel administering a single budget comprising what was formerly the annual revenue grants, sports, arts and leisure grants.
