Each year, the charity trustees allocate an amount of money to provide small grants to individuals in need. County Durham Community Foundation (CDCF) match fund this donation so that together we can support some of the most vulnerable groups and individuals in the North East.
During the year April 2020-March 2021, 88% of the grants awarded were to support family life, poverty and disadvantage, health, wellbeing and serious illness, housing, mental health, caring responsibilities and domestic violence. Just under 30% of the primary beneficiaries of such grants were awarded to children and young people and 25% to families/parents/lone parents.
CDCF are a registered charity that specialise in grant giving and they manage the whole application process on our behalf.
