Youth Focus: North East

We fund a number of Youth Focus: North East projects including the ‘Fast Friends’ drop-in, ‘Big Days’ events series (#iwill Fund) and ‘Community Hosting’.

Scotswood Garden

Runs sessions for young people aged 9 to 13 years old and 14 to 18 years old to explore what it means to be lonely and create opportunities to find solutions.

Groundwork North East

“Northern Navigators” empowers young people previously not in employment, education or training to support their peers to access health, wellbeing and employability services. Supported through our #iwill fund.


Runs a co-designed programme of support for young people at risk of, or with experience of, homelessness to help them maintain their tenancies and access activities to reduce loneliness.
