Northern Rock Foundation
Northern Rock Foundation is an independent charity, which aims to tackle disadvantage and improve quality of life in the North East and Cumbria.
The Foundation gives grants to organisations which help people who are vulnerable, disadvantaged, homeless, living in poverty or are victims of crime or discrimination. We also support training, research and demonstration work and gather and share learning from the activities we fund. Where appropriate we seek to inform and influence wider regional and national policies and practice.
Tudor makes grants, and provides other types of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. They particularly want to help smaller, community-led organisations which work directly with people who are at the margins of society: organisations which support positive changes in people's lives and in their communities.
