Support and resilience

Membership+ Supporter Scheme

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

Safer Culture North East

We're providing support to the sector around safeguarding issues, working in partnership with local infrastructure organisations. 

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.


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 Support

Working with leaders in their field, we're delivering a programme of innovation support to the North East voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.


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