The Stanley Community Fund helps community and voluntary organisations with grants between £2,000 and £10,000 to fund a broad range of projects that will benefit people and communities in and around the County Durham town.
In exceptional circumstance, grants in excess of £10,000 may be considered.
Priority for the Fund is given to organisations operating within the boundaries of the Stanley Parish Wards, which are: Annfield Plain; Catchgate; Craghead and South Stanley; Havannah; South Moor; Stanley Hall, and Tanfield.
The fund, initially set up in 2019 and supported by Stanley Town Council, is as an innovative way to try to maximise funding into the Stanley Town Council area. In year one of the fund, more than £120,000 was available to groups for projects within the Stanley Area.
There are no limits to the size of organisation that can apply, however priority goes to those that can evidence that they can deliver significant impact locally.
