High Sheriffs Awards

Northumberland is very fortunate to have a fund, which is managed and administered by Community Foundation (Tyne & Wear and Northumberland) which is the largest Community Foundation England, and invites applications from across the region.

This fund was started in 1992 by Michael Lloyd, from Haydon Bridge, when he was High Sheriff. He modernised the centuries-old post when he set up the Northumberland High Sheriff Fund. Each year grants are given out to a range of organisations and in 2014/15 the High Sheriff fund gave out £35,000 to approximately 50 voluntary groups across Northumberland.

Northumberland High Sheriff Youth Awards Scheme (NHSA)
The High Sheriff of Northumberland Youth Awards Scheme makes awards in recognition of groups in the community who encourage useful and beneficial pursuits for young people, helping them to be upstanding citizens and hopefully avoid criminal activities.

Who can apply
Awards are made to voluntary and community groups and registered charities working in Northumberland.  The project must involve work with children and young people aged 10 to 25 years old.  The application must show what the organisation does to steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour. To make an application to the High Sheriff of Northumberland fund visit How to Apply for a dedicated online application form.

Further details
Awards are made throughout the year and applications are accepted at any time. There is an annual celebratory event in February or March for all recipients of an award during the financial year.

If you would like to make a donation in recognition of the work of young people in your region please follow the link to the High Sheriff of Northumberland Awards page on the Community Foundation website.
