The City of Durham Parish Council is extremely proud to support local community and voluntary organisations through its grant awards again this year. There are an amazing amount on groups in our parish who are doing invaluable work to make the lives of our residents better and its right that we do all we can to support these hard-working dedicated volunteers who too often go unsung in our communities. This is really an avenue of support for these organisations which did not exist prior to the Parish Council being set up and this year the Parish Council has agreed a total fund of £20,000 towards grants for local groups. As with every year, we are keen to support as many groups as we possibly can, particularly in light of the obvious challenges which the Covid-19 pandemic has presented.
If you have any queries about the application process, please do not hesitate to contact our Parish Clerk Adam via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
