Groundwork North East
Inspiring Change across the North East and Cumbria. Groundwork North East helps people and organisations make changes in order to create better neighbourhoods, to build skills and job prospects, and to live and work in a greener way.
We know that the important issues are all connected – so our work can’t easily be placed in boxes marked ‘environmental issues’, ‘regeneration’, ’employment’ or ‘health’. We create projects and services that benefit both people and the wider environment.
We operate across the North East and work on hundreds of individual projects each year. We focus our activity on disadvantaged communities where we can make the most difference.
Derwentside Homes owns and manages approximately 6,800 homes across North West Durham, making it one of the largest providers of rented homes and a leading local employer.Making a difference in communities is a key objective for Derwentside Homes and is ingrained within their culture. It’s vitally important that the company grows as a business in a way that benefits its customers, communities and wider society.
Since launching in 2006, Derwentside Homes has not only delivered the promises made to tenants at transfer, but exceeded these by developing new services and innovative projects.
Lloyds TSB Foundations
The Foundation funds local, regional and national charities working to tackle disadvantage across England and Wales. Seventy percent of our funding is for core costs, and our focus is on supporting underfunded charities that can make a significant difference to the lives of disadvantaged people by helping them to play a fuller role in the community. Our strong local presence enables us to respond directly and promptly to local needs.
