Northern Rock Foundation

Northern Rock Foundation is an independent charity and company limited by guarantee. Their aims are to tackle disadvantage and improve quality of life in North East England and Cumbria. They do this by investing money, time and expertise in charitable activities using several tools including grants, loans, training, research and demonstration work. They also seek to learn from and share good practice and, where appropriate, to inform and influence wider policies and practice.

They offer core support, project grants and grants towards capital costs within revenue projects (e.g. small items of equipment). They do not offer grants for building projects. They will support tried-and-tested activities that can prove they are still meeting a clear need, and genuine innovation where it is warranted.
