Darlington Borough Council has launched a special fund in partnership with County Durham Community Foundation to help local voluntary and community organisations that provide support to vulnerable people across the borough.
The key aims of the fund are:
If an organisation has contracted services with Darlington Borough Council and is seeking support, hardship should be addressed through commissioning procedures initially. Organisations that are seeking financial support through this grant programme for activities that are aligned but differ from their contracted services will be considered but will not be given priority.
If an organisation has already received help from the Government’s small business relief scheme this will be taken into consideration when assessing and determining any award.
Size of grants
Grants are available of up to £10,000 although it is envisaged that the majority of grant awards will be c£5,000.
