With the support of Durham County Council Area Action Partnership Budget, Durham Community Action and East Durham Trust are working in partnership to provide support to those responsible for the management of community buildings, as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, and activities fully return to communities.

With Covid-19 having had such a significant impact on the activities and services Community Buildings provide, this project fund will help to rebuild confidence and capacity of staff and volunteers as they reopen and emerge from Covid-19.

This small grants scheme aims to help kickstart recovery and build a stronger future by providing funding for some of the resources and capacity needed to ensure community buildings are safe and covid secure.

The application process:

Applications for the fund will be processed centrally, with EDT being the lead decision maker for East Durham and East Durham Rural Corridor AAP areas, and DCA the lead decision maker for all other AAP areas across the county.

DCA and EDT will be working together throughout to monitor the impact of this grant programme and as such will collaborate on the assessment and monitoring processes.
