Our Aims

Broadly speaking we set out to represent and further the interests of the St. Peter's Neighbourhood area in Newcastle, its residents and people who work there.

We encourage and promote neighbourhood-wide outlooks and solutions. We have formed close relations between residents and businesses in St. Peter's, as well strong working relationships with Newcastle City Council and Northumbria Police.

We pragmatically facilitate volunteer group activities. We also promote and work to enhance the neighbourhood where we all together live and work. 

Our Funding

We are a voluntary organisation that depends upon our own fundraising initiatives and financial donations.

Many people have commented warmly about all the recent work of St. Peter's Neighbourhood Association, the volunteer groups and activities.

If as an individual, a group or a company, you wish to donate money to assist future activities in St. Peter's, then please contact secretary@stpetersnewcastle.co.uk

The Association in recent years has received project-support grants from organisations including:

  • National Lottery Community Fund
  • Newcastle Building Society
  • Newcastle City Council Ward-aid
  • British Engines Community Fund
