It’s a great project where Your Homes Newcastle and Newcastle City Council work together to support local communities to make improvements in their local area. Local people can apply for to fund ideas to improve their community and we can fund projects between £250 and £750. We are looking for applications for the final round of the project during September! Your project needs to be open to new people and include or benefit council tenants. Your ideas need to fit one of the 5 themes.
  • Safe Newcastle
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Skills and Engagement
  • Environment
  • Young People
Ideas that are successful in the first stage will go to an online vote where tenants and residents across the city can vote for their favourite projects. Last year the project funded 94 great projects such as community allotments and gardens, training opportunities and activities for children and young people. If you have an idea you’d like to put forward you have until 29th September. The funding must be spent by 31 March 2018. Please read the attached guidance and application form and if you need further information contact Sue Wannop on tel. 0191 277 3536 or email positivepeople@newcastle.gov.uk
