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 workshops and signed up for regular updates about the fund. The number of applications received once again exceeded expectations.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance at Stockport Council said: “We’ve received some wonderful applications that demonstrate just how many people have fantastic ideas for community activities and projects.”

“This fund is part of our wider Stockport Local ambition to help people to join together and make our neighbourhoods even better places to live in. I strongly encourage you to get involved with your community in whatever way you can. Take a look at our Stockport Local online directory to find out what’s happening in your area and how you can join in.”

We will be making a decision soon and we 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, the good news is there will be another opportunity to apply in April. To make sure you don’t miss out, now’s the time to start developing your great idea. Sign up for email updates so you don’t miss key dates.
