About

The Cedarwood Trust is a community development charity working on the Meadow Well Estate of North Tyneside a community full of untapped energy and creativity which is hampered by the levels of poverty and income deprivation it experiences. We believe that the community have the resources themselves to make a lasting difference and we work to raise confidences and aspirations in order to change lives.

Much of our work is focused upon those experiencing the highest levels of poverty including over 60's and young families.

The Meadow Well Estate is often seen, from the outside, in negative terms, particularly relating to income deprivation and poverty - these are major challenges for us all at the Cedarwood Trust but we aim to also celebrate all that is good within the Meadow Well Estate.

We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.

Cedarwood Trust

What a week here at the centre.

We welcomed over 150 people to our first ever Cedarwood Panto with our friends at Blowin a Hooley and supported by the Stop Loan Sharks Team. We were delighted to be joined by the fantastic Jimmy Nail who came to view our performance this afternoon.

We have also had our AGM and annual Christmas light switch on which was heavily attended. Stalls, raffle and the big switch on by Kim Tserkezie.

We also say goodbye to our CEO Phil McGrath who leaves for pastures new. Phil has become well know for his passion to promoting a better world on the estate. Through his passion, kind heart, his dedication and his ability to overcome barriers has lead to some amazing work on the estate. We wish him the very best in his new role and thank you for all your hard work.

We welcome Wayne, our incoming CEO who joins the team in January and can’t wait to get started continuing the hard work the trust are dedicated in providing.
