North East England Micro-Grant Expression of Interest

We are delighted to be partnering with Mercers’ Charitable Foundation to offer Micro-grants of £2,000 to local churches starting a Recommended Project in specific areas.

If your church is in one of the following counties then you are welcome to apply:

  • Durham
  • Tyne & Wear
  • Tees Valley
  • Northumberland
In particular, we encourage applications from churches working in areas of high deprivation.

Please note, limited grants are available and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please note:
Our normal turnaround time to process Micro-grant applications is 6 weeks, although sometimes it can take longer. 

And once you have enquired please do connect with our Cinnamon Regional Advisors, Jonny Gios (North of England) prior to making an application.

Also note, you will have to become a member of Cinnamon Connect in order to apply for a Micro-grant. You can do that HERE

(We strongly recommend you speak to a Cinnamon ADVISOR first. See panel on the left)
