About


The Elswick Solidarity fund aims to redistribute funds within Elswick and the west end while providing material assistance to residents who are facing financial hardship. This fund can be used for anything, there is neither judgement nor is there an obligation to pay back the money. This is run in direct accordance with principles of mutual aid - “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need”.

If you donate to this fund you will be donating in that spirit.

You can apply for funds of up to £30 per application, applications can be made once a month. The fund will be payout when there are funds available. You must live in the Arthurs Hill, Elswick, Benwell/Scotswood wards.

Please just submit here.
www.opencollective.com/elswicksolidarityfund/expenses

    1) First name
    2) Initial of surname
    3) Proof of address (this will not be publicly viewable)

NB. Bank account details need to match other details.

If you are homeless and/or do not have a fixed postcode or do not wish to submit a proof of address, please get in touch [email protected] or 07393101018 (we will return text or return missed calls) -

Not having a way of proving your address is not a barrier to accessing the fund, but due to restrictions on how the fund is administered by the fiscal host we would have to give grants differently and this will take longer to administer

The fund does not release money every day, you might have short wait to receive the grant. Please take this into account when you apply for funds, as they may not be released immediately.

Aspects of the fund will be reviewed in an ongoing fashion - decisions on changes to the fund or this expense policy will be made by consensus in meetings open to all members of the community.
