At present the council does not have any funding available for the voluntary and community sector.

The council stated that they are trying to move away from funding the voluntary sector through grant aid, preferring to procure contracts and tender for services.

We would advise contacting the North Tyneside Voluntary Sector Development Agency for help with local funding.

Many local authorities are now moving away from grant-making and beginning to use commissioning as a way to distribute funding to the third sector. Local commissioners can be difficult to find and identify, however NAVCA have created a guide that may help: 'Finding Your Commissioner'

Useful organisations:

North Tyneside Voluntary Sector Development Agency:

South Tyneside CVS:

Though the named contact is helpful and informed there is not currently any funding available from the North Tyneside Council. There is no information relating to other sources of funding or support for the VCS sector on the council's website.
