Community Partnering Fund grantees announced

Twelve grassroots organisations across the North East, Yorkshire and Cumbria are set to receive grants as part of the Community Partnering Fund.

The £100k fund, founded by Northern Powergrid and Northern Gas Networks in partnership with Leeds Community Foundation, supports organisations delivering pioneering and sustainable projects across the North of England. These projects tackle a range of issues, including fuel poverty, energy efficiency, and supporting more young people to study science and technology subjects.

A full list of grantees – which includes VONNE Membership+ supporters Deaf Awareness: NE, the Parker Trust and the International Community Organisation of Sunderland – can be found on the latest Northern Powergrid newsletter.
