Last month we announced our success in bidding to the Baring Foundation for a training, education and capacity building grant for a two year project for us to work in collaboration with the North East Law Centre and some of our other members to support them to develop and use legal and human rights approaches to make a difference to the lives of their beneficiaries.
We were very pleased that we had 15 applications to be our partners in this project, as well as a number of suggestions as to what the project could be called. We have decided to name it the Blue Stone Rights Project, as suggested by Jeremy Cripps of Children North East. Thank you Jeremy.
Today we are very excited to announce that we have chosen the following organisations to be partners with us in the project. We’re really looking forward to working with them and chuffed to bits that they are keen to be involved.
The Angelou Centre
Children North East
Involve North East
Newcastle Council for Voluntary Service
Riverside Community Health Project
