Thanks to support from our Police and Crime Commissioner, Ron Hogg, East Durham Trust has been able to establish an active forum for groups and individuals whose work is touched by Domestic Abuse.
The group has now met on three occasions and has already shared vital information about each other’s services and resources available. Practical examples of early success include a number of emergency parcels being distributed to individuals in crisis situations. These parcels are specifically designed to respond to the needs of people who find themselves in unanticipated isolation whilst support services are established.

What We Do
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation and health inequality. East Durham Trust’s operates on a ‘hub and spoke’ approach through well-established partnerships with our communities. We work directly with community members and partners to facilitate prevention, intervention and crisis support services delivered in our communities, for our communities and by our communities.
We empower people to take ownership of their own needs and work to lift up those most in need in East Durham. We help build and maintain meaningful relationships within our community ensuring those on the margins are helped to be in reach of a spectrum vital services.
