What is CLLD?
North of Tyne Community Led Local Development (NT CLLD) is a locally managed funding programme that targets selected areas in Newcastle upon Tyne & Wallsend to encourage local groups rooted in their communities to suggest, design and deliver projects that contribute to increased employment, develop businesses and improve opportunities to enhance local life.
Newcastle City Council has secured £2.1m of European funding, to offer grants to organisations and deliver North of Tyne CLLD Strategy. Organisations, groups and businesses can apply for funding to deliver their projects supporting local people on their journey to employment or entrepreneurship and local businesses to grow.
the Local Action Group
The Local Action Group consists of representatives of private, voluntary and community and public sectors. The Group drives the delivery of the CLLD programme, designs calls for projects, selects projects to get funding from CLLD and continues to make links with local communities.
What will it achieve?
The CLLD programme aims to support 1,890 local people, including 1,323 unemployed, 472 economically inactive, 359 people over 50, 321 people from ethnic minorities, 548 people with disabilities, 945 women and 170 carers. We hope that the programme will help at least 359 people to enter education or training, 212 unemployed to find a job and 137 economically inactive to find a job or start looking for one.
The CLLD programme also aims to support 104 existing businesses to grow and create at least 79 new jobs as well as 575 potential entrepreneurs to start their business. There is also a scope to refurbish 200 m2 of community hub buildings.

Round 2 is open, with an estimated pot of £1million and we are now accepting applications.
