Micro-commissioning for community group youth activities- apply for funding

Apply for a commission to fund youth activities for your community group.

Northumberland Community Voluntary Action and Community Action Northumberland are jointly working with the Ballinger Charitable Trust and the National Lottery Community Fund to commission youth activities to be run by small volunteer-led groups. 

Commissions are available of either £500 or £1,000, with a maximum of one per group. Monies must be spent on direct delivery in support of children and/or young people.


  • Purchase of equipment or resources for young people 
  • A day trip to a local / regional activity 
  • A sessional worker to deliver activities 
  • Sports activities which encourage participation 

These are examples only and any other youth-based activity will be considered
