We place a great deal of emphasis in supporting groups whose work is in the Tyne & Wear and Northumberland regions. Applications from charities working in these areas will be given priority. We are also developing our support for groups in North Yorkshire (including York), West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. We do occasionally consider some applications from other regions and for International projects but these are much less likely to receive our support.
