STANLEY FUNDING PANEL – Expressions of Interest

The Town Council has recently announced that the new Stanley Community Fund is now open for applications. The County Durham Community Fund which is administering the fund will oversee an independent funding panel comprised of local people to review applications for funding and make the grant awards.

Applications are now sought from local residents of the Stanley Town Council area who wish to contribute to the area by participating in the funding panel.

The panel will meet locally 3 or 4 times a year to assess applications to the fund, to assess them against relevant criteria and prioritise and agree which projects are funded. Panel members will also participate in monitoring outcomes of the funded projects.
