Taylor's Educational Foundation


This charitable trust exists to provide financial help to people under the age of 25 who live in the area of the former Newburn Urban District Council (being the current Newcastle electoral wards of Newburn, Lemington, Westerhope and Denton).

Grants of up to £150 are available this year to any such person who requires financial assistance with their education or training or to enter any trade or profession.

For instance, grants may be awarded to help buy books, clothing, tools or other equipment, or towards fees or other costs in attending an educational establishment or pursuing an apprenticeship or some other type of training. 

Anyone wishing to apply for a grant can do so by letter addressed to the Chair of the Trust c/o Jane Gibson, Walbottle Campus, Hexham Road, Walbottle, NE15 9TP.  Applications should give as much detail as possible of what financial assistance is sought, and why, together with your full name and address and date of birth.  (Please also explain where you heard about the grants). They must be received by no later than Monday 2 March 2015.

Please note that previous applicants/recipients should not apply again.

All applications will be considered by the Trustees in mid-March 2015. Successful applicants will be notified by 24 March 2015.
