Membership+ Supporter Scheme

We provide networking and peer learning opportunities for Chief Executives through our Membership+ supporter scheme.


Through collaboration with specialists we aid delivery of governance support to the sector.

Developing a social investment strategy

Thanks to funding from The Connect Fund we are engaging VCSEs and stakeholders in the North East to develop a strategy for social investment.

The project will trial new approaches to engagement and support the sector to adopt more enterprising models of operation.


With the Institute of Fundraising and Community Foundation we support the North East Fundraising Conference to develop the region’s fundraisers.

In partnership with Keda Consulting we run the North East Fundraising Hub, a space for shared learning and experiences.


Through the North East & Cumbria Funders Network we enable funders to be better networked and informed and work together more effectively to improve and maximise their support to North East communities.

We provide funding information to organisations through our Funding Information North East and online Funding Directory.

Innovation and Digital

Working with leaders in their field, we are delivering programmes of digital and innovation support to the North East voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
