Community Buildings Support Fund Launch
With the support of the 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 project makes available a small grants scheme to help kick start recovery and build a stronger future by providing resources and capacity needed to ensure community buildings are safe and COVID secure.
Some examples could include:
- Equipment and materials to support COVID secure measures.
- Support for the delivery of activities or sessions securing the return of user groups and social connectivity.
A key part of the project will be to share learning and resources across the county by coming together as a learning community. The project will provide an opportunity to build shared resources and generate opportunities for the longer-term development of community buildings across County Durham.
The session will be held on Zoom from 10.00am until 11.00 am. This will be followed by a phone in session between 1.00pm and 4.00pm which will be an opportunity to discuss the needs of your individual organisations.
