Funding & Project Officer

My name is Stephen Humphrey and I took up the post of Funding & Project Officer at Ashington Town Council in 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 work for Ashington Town Council at this exciting time in the town's development. Although Ashington faces many challenges the Town Council is working with a wide range of partners and is committed to improving the town and make it an attractive place to live, work and visit.

I was born in Ashington, attended local schools and live in the area. I have several interests including sport, music and reading biographies as well as following a local football team that plays in red and white stripes.   

If you have any ideas on how Ashington could be improved the Town Council would like to hear from you.
