We're celebrating after being awarded

£162,000 in National Lottery funding

to launch our Skill Share Project.


The funding will be used to run practical training, activities and workshops at our Teesside Hub to support people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis to increase their resilience, help their money go further and live more sustainably.  

Offering alternative provision to adults seeking to move forward, our Teesside Hub welcomes Learners are of all ages and backgrounds. Many have convictions, care-experience or come from families who’ve been unemployed for generations. This new funding from The National Lottery Community Fund will allow us to welcome over 300 people to the Hub over the next 2 years.

Bringing people together

The vision behind the project is to support people to share the skills they have and build the skills they need. Carpentry, cookery, gardening and ‘make do and mend’ activities are planned for the first term, but we're keen that the project remains flexible and draws on the skills, life-experience and needs of our Learners as it progresses.

The funding will also help us play our part in addressing local health and wealth inequalities, by continuing to embed our training in social action and focus on skills that contribute to a greener, circular economy. 


Dave Mumford, Director of Three13 Training says: “We’re delighted that The National Lottery Community Fund has recognised our work in this way. We're confident this project will make a real difference by providing an inclusive environment for people to grow in confidence and build the skills and relationships they need to thrive.”

National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. Thanks to them, last year The National Lottery Community Fund was able to distribute over half a billion pounds (£615.4 million) of life-changing funding to communities.
