Stanley Community Funding

A community isn’t just an area of land – a postcode or village, town, suburb or street. It’s people. It’s goodwill. It’s coming together to achieve a shared goal or offer support in a crisis.

It is all of these things and more and in the Stanley area we’re lucky to have such strong bonds that will see us through the difficult situations and emerge a more robust, more united community.

Outstanding work is carried out daily by the members of PACT House (of 39 Front, Stanley, DH9 0JE), which has mobilised incredibly since the very beginning of the covid crisis.  Offering meals and free teas & coffee literally all day with a friendly warm smile.
