Policy change for a better society
Through our strategic partners, placement scheme and very occasional one-off grants, we promote policy change by funding projects that inform discussion and influence public policy. Our aim is to produce lasting change in the North East by empowering communities and reducing social deprivation.
Millfield House Foundation: a Living Wage Friendly Funder
Millfield House Foundation became officially a Friendly Funder on May 4th 2017. We are delighted to join the growing group of trusts and foundations which have adopted a policy of advocating for and paying the Living Wage.
Our Open Grants Programme is now closed although the Trustees may from time to time decide to invest in interesting or potentially effective ideas that they or the Trust Manager come across.
