The Children’s Foundation Regional Small Grants programme supports community projects that benefit children and young people in the North East area, in line with our aims and objectives. Grants awarded are up to a maximum of £1,000.
Since the Regional Small Grants panel was established, over £300,753.92 has been awarded to community projects. These projects have directly benefitted over 55,411 children and young people across the whole region. Grants are allocated in line with The Children’s Foundation values; to alleviate the negative impact of distress, disadvantage and disability.
The Mental Health round of Regional Small Grants is now open, with this round we would like to recognise the achievements of groups who are working to improve understanding, awareness, service provision and the general mental health of our children.
We especially welcome applications that are particularly creative, innovative and that connect well with mental health. We encourage applications that benefit young people and the broader community by giving young people the opportunity to develop skills they can use throughout their lives, such as leadership and decision making skills, working collaboratively and developing creative ideas.
The Regional Small Grants round will recognise excellence and/or innovation in programs, projects or initiatives that have focused their efforts within promotion of mental wellbeing or early intervention to prevent mental ill-health.c
