COVID-19 - We are fully operational and our team is working remotely to continue to provide help and support to our community.

We want you to know we are here, working safely at home, to provide continued support. Whilst we are still processing general grant applications, we are prioritising requests from those groups who are directly responding to the impact of the pandemic.

Applications for other purposes will be processed but may experience a slight delay whilst we provide help where it is most urgently needed. 

In an effort to be as responsive as possible in these unprecedented times, we have lifted the 'one application per year' restriction, which means those who need funds can repeatedly apply for help as needed throughout this evolving situation. You can contact us through all the usual routes - calls to the main number are being diverted to the team but using our website's online form or messaging via Facebook where possible would be most effective at this time.

We care passionately about providing support to the Tees Valley community and are committed to providing specialised, responsible support for the foreseeable future.

Keep checking our Facebook page for ways you can help us to help our community at this difficult time.

Stay connected and take care of yourselves and others.

How can you help?


Sometimes it’s better to ask: What do you want your money to do? What would you like the impact to be?

Whether you’re making a donation from your own money, managing a legacy from the loss of a loved one, or have any other circumstance that bring you here, we’re experienced in helping our donors make decisions that can sometimes be sensitive, complex, legally intricate and overwhelming.

We navigate the process so the intention and impact hits the right spot. Is your donation for now, forever or both?
