Older people

G F Eyre Charitable Trust

Funding is available for general charitable purposes. Previously the Trust has supported a wide range of different local, national and international causes, including charities working for human medical research, the relief of suffering and respite, and religious and heritage charities.

 

The Allen Lane Foundation

We are interested in funding charitable causes which we believe to be unpopular both in society, and with other funders. Our focus is currently on adults within eight beneficiary groups:
• Asylum seekers and refugees*
• Gypsies and Travellers
• LGBTQ communities
• Migrant communities*
• Offenders and ex-offenders
• Older people
• People experiencing mental health problems
• People experiencing violence or abuse
* We do not fund organisations working with single nationalities

The R. W. Mann Trust

The Trust has a preference for supporting organisations in the North Tyneside, South East Northumberland and in the East Newcastle areas. In certain circumstances we may assist those operating in the wider Tyne, Wear, Durham and Northumberland areas if we consider that they offer exceptional added value to their communities or are particularly innovative. Support to national organisations will only be given where there is a specific project in the area in which we operate.

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.

Eden - Leisure Fund Grant for Organisations

The Leisure Fund Grant scheme is provided and administered by Eden District Council. Funding is intended for local not-for-profit clubs, groups and organisations and can be used for a wide variety of leisure projects.

Small grants are available to local community groups for capital and revenue costs associated with projects that support and improve sports, arts and other leisure activities in the district.
