Thank you to everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund

Stockport Council would like to thank everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund over the past few months. A total of £113,166 has been awarded to Stockport community groups, made up of £50,635 in grants from the special Coronavirus Community Support Fund and £62,531 awarded to groups who applied during the last round of funding.

Councillor Amanda Peers, Cabinet Member for Inclusive Neighbourhoods said: “Stockport Council thanks the volunteers and community groups who make up Stockport’s voluntary sector for their crucial work responding to the pandemic. We are delighted we have been able to provide over £100,000 of funding for many different groups across Stockport who are providing vital support.

“The funding we have awarded is just part of our Stockport Local ambition to help residents, the voluntary sector and businesses to join together and build stronger communities. We will continue to support the amazing work that is taking place at a neighbourhood level by encouraging collaboration and helping organisations find and apply for funding for community projects.”
