Proposed changes to the Newcastle Fund annual budget in 2020-21

Newcastle Fund

We want to hear what you have to say about our proposals for the Newcastle Fund annual budget from 2020-21.

Please read our proposal, which outlines how we intend to reduce the annual budget of the Newcastle Fund by £200,000 from £1.4m to £1.2m in 2020-21 as a contribution to our budget cuts:

Then give us your views by taking part in our survey by 10 June 2019.


Due to the disproportionate cuts from Government which are more than twice the national average, Newcastle City Council must save a further £60 million in the period between 2019-20 to 2021-2022. The Newcastle Fund has been identified as a potential contributor towards these savings.
