The LGA Foundation would like to offer financial assistance to charities and community organisations affected by the impact of coronavirus.
The Foundation supports a wide range of projects across Tyneside and Northumberland that aim to improve health and wellbeing, particularly of young and vulnerable people.
Sue Reece said: “In these challenging and uncertain times we want to offer our support to ensure vital frontline projects that provide a lifeline to their communities can continue their important work.
“We are already hearing how projects are quickly adapting to meet these challenges, such as providing online advice when face-to-face contact is no longer possible. The dedication of staff and volunteers is also inspirational as they continue to keep services running despite having their own health to consider and their own families to care for.
“We hope that by working together, we can all help to look after the health and wellbeing of the most vulnerable in our communities.”
