North Star is a North-East based Housing Association that aims to provide affordable housing, invest in communities, and develop new homes across the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire, and County Durham.
This fund aims to support local groups and community organisations to deliver projects and activities that support local communities, unlock their potential, transform lives, and create a sense of belonging for North Star residents and communities.
Grants of up to £2,500 are available.
Voluntary and community groups, resident associations, registered charities, schools, and North Star residential schemes can apply.
Priority will be given to projects that benefit communities in Hartlepool, Evenwood, Cockfield, Thornaby, Stockton, Middlesbrough, and East Cleveland.
In this round of funding, priority will be given to projects and ideas that support communities with the rising cost of living, as well as activities that address one or more of North Star’s priorities:
- Poverty reduction.
- Education and skills.
- Health and well-being.
- Sustainable communities.
Projects cannot be funded twice in any one financial year.
Next deadline is 1st November 2023
