Thank you to everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund

Stockport Council would like to thank everyone who applied to Stockport Local Fund, attended the launch event and workshops and signed up for regular updates about the fund. Both the number of attendees at the events and the number of applications received exceeded expectations.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance at Stockport Council said: “We’ve received almost 200 applications and it’s encouraging to see the energy and enthusiasm being shown by people in Stockport wanting to help their neighbours. So many wonderful ideas have been proposed by local people to make our neighbourhoods even better places to live in.”

“We are delighted to have the chance to invest in some wonderful projects that help friends and neighbours join together and make a difference in our communities and we look forward to seeing the successful ideas become a reality.”

The council will contact applicants to let them know the outcome of their application and what the next steps are within six weeks.

Although the first application window has now closed, the good news is there will be another opportunity to apply later in the year. Sign up for email updates on our web-pages so you don’t miss future application dates.
