Thank you to everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund

Stockport Council would like to thank everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund. We’re reviewing all the submissions and will contact applicants to let them know the outcome of their application and what the next steps are within four weeks. Although this application window has now closed, there will be another opportunity to apply next year. To make sure you don’t miss out, sign up for email alerts.

Laureen Donnan, Deputy Chief Executive at Stockport Council says: “Once again, we were delighted to receive so many diverse and innovative ideas for community projects. We look forward to supporting local people to help make these a reality.

“The fund is just part of our Stockport Local approach of greater collaboration with residents, the voluntary sector and businesses. Last week’s Sector Connector event brought together 60 people from Stockport businesses, community organisations and the council to co-create and develop new ideas, demonstrating that great things happen when we work together.

“We are putting people at the heart of everything we do and that includes making it easy to find local support, activities and volunteering opportunities. Our Stockport Local online directory lists almost 800 community groups and services and receives around 6,000 page visits per month. There are so many ways to get involved in your local community, please do take a look.”
