YHN Community Fund 2021

What is the YHN Community Fund?

The YHN Community Fund aims to have a positive impact on the communities where YHN has homes by investing in community projects and partners that are already doing great work and helping them to achieve more.

The fund is open to voluntary and community sector organisations in Newcastle to bid for a share of £20,000 available across two remaining rounds throughout this year. Organisations can bid for grants of up to £4,000 per round.

We are looking for projects that will focus on:

•    Building stronger communities
•    Reducing social isolation and loneliness 
•    Improving mental health and well-being 
•    Tackling digital exclusion and digital poverty


Engaging diverse communities 

We are also looking for projects that strongly demonstrate engagement with diverse communities of Newcastle and help to bring people together.

Successful projects

YHN has been excited to support some great projects spanning digital inclusion work to lift young people out of digital poverty due to homelessness or vulnerable housing; inter-generational theatre work bringing young and older audiences together to boost confidence and well-being; social events to bring older people out of their homes and beginning to socialise once again following the impact of the pandemic; environmental conservation and planting delivered by young people and many more.
