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.
Local projects need to support the Objectives and fit into the Activities listed in the North of Tyne CLLD Strategy
CLLD hopes to close the gap between the least and most well off neighbourhoods by ensuring that disadvantaged communities can access existing and new opportunities that are emerging as a result of significant investment in the local economy. The main beneficiaries of the CLLD funded projects are residents (mainly unemployed and economically inactive), local voluntary organisations and community groups as well as small to medium sized enterprises located in the CLLD area. Within these groups, the following have been identified as priority groups:
- Social enterprises and VCS groups looking into setting up a social enterprise
- Women, especially those who have struggled with any kind of economic activity
- People from ethnic minorities
- People with disabilities (including people with mental health issues)
- People who have never worked
- People who are between 50 and 64
The full version of the North of Tyne CLLD strategy is available here.
Please take the time to familiarise yourself with it. This will help you decide if your project is a good match for CLLD funding and understand the aims of the 5 year programme.
