The Gateshead Housing Company Community Fund offers cash grants and in-kind support to voluntary organisations who work with the housing company’s tenants. The fund, held by the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, makes grants that help people overcome disadvantage, create stronger communities and make Gateshead a great place to live.
Grants are made by the Community Foundation based on the recommendations of a panel that includes representatives from The Gateshead Housing Company and Gateshead Council, and we’re keen for one of our residents to join the panel, to help ensure that the money is spent in the right way.
This is an opportunity to do something very rewarding, helping the most deserving of the borough’s community organisations, for a small time commitment of just two meetings per year, following an in-depth induction with the housing company and the Community Foundation.
