Funding & Project Officer

My name is Stephen Humphrey and I took up the post of Funding & Project Officer at Ashington Town Council in April 2013.

In my previous employment I worked for Wansbeck District Council, Entrust and most recently with Wansbeck CVS - assisting the voluntary & community sector access significant funding for a wide range of projects in South East Northumberland.  I am a fully certificated member of the Institute of Fundraising.

I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to work for Ashington Town Council at this exciting time with significant investment and developments taking place.  Although Ashington faces many challenges I am looking forward to working with all partners in improving the town and making it an attractive place to live and work.

I was born in Ashington, attended local schools and still live in the area.  I have many interests including sport, music, reading biographies as well as competing in numerous Great North Runs!  

If you have any ideas on how the town could be improved please get in touch!
