The City of Durham Parish Council is delighted to provide assistance and support to local community organisations which are set up to promote community life for our residents. The Council’s financial support is provided by way of grants, which are decided against criteria set by the Parish Council each year.
The funding window for grants is now open and will remain open until Friday 2nd June 2023. A decision on whether to award a grant will be made at our Full Council meeting on Thursday 22nd June 2023.
There is no limit to what each organisation can apply for but please bear in mind that the total grants fund for 2023-24 is £15,000 and we like to support as many organisations as we possibly can.
In order to receive a grant from the Parish Council, your organisation and the project for which you are seeking funding must comply with our agreed small grants policy.
You can see if the project for which you are hoping to apply for funding is in our parish area via this interactive map.
To apply for a small grant from the Parish Council, please complete this application form and return it to our Parish Clerk Adam by no later than 5pm on 2nd June 2023.
Please also remember to include the latest copy of your organisation’s audited accounts.
All application forms and accounts can either be returned via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via post to: City of Durham Parish Council. c/o Office 3, Clayport Library. 8 Millennium Place. Durham. DH1 1WA.
You can find out more about some of the most recent fantastic local projects the Parish Council has supported via this report from previous grant award winners.
