Following discussions with The County Durham Community Foundation, it was felt we needed to put together information for smaller groups and organisations who were looking for funding. We have attempted to give a "first steps" look at Funding in County Durham. As the weeks progress, we will work on this page and attempt to improve it.
Durham Community Action **New**
We provide advice and support to groups across County Durham, both large and small, to help them access funding to develop their work. Visit Durham Community Action or please contact Tracy Emery to find out more information about how we can help you.
County Durham Community Foundation **New**
County Durham Community Foundation provides grants that make a genuine difference to the lives of local people. We manage charitable funds donated by local individuals, families, businesses and trusts, building up a source of long-term support for the community and acting as the vital link between donors and local needs, enabling people to achieve far more than they could by themselves. Before you submit your application, if you have any questions you are welcome to call us on 0191 378 6340 or visit County Durham Community Foundation
Awards for All - National lottery **New**
The entry level of awards from the National Lottery A quick and easy way to get small Lottery grants of between £300 and £10,000 Awards for All is a highly competitive and popular programme. Whilst it remains open to all eligible groups, please be aware that prioritisation is given to groups with lower incomes. We encourage you to consider this before applying.
