An article has appeared in the latest issue of Newton News (5th May) on the celebratory event marking Area Action Partnerships 10th Anniversary...
The contribution Area Action Partnerships make to communities across County Durham has been recognised at a special event marking their tenth anniversary.
Since 2009, Durham County Council’s 14 Area Action Partnerships (AAP) have delivered more than 6,000 community projects, engaged with more than 30,000 people and have helped secured funding in excess of £100million.
For the event, each AAP had dominated a project they felt was "without equal" over the past ten years and awards were given out to representatives from the initiatives.
The winning project for East Durham AAP was 'Welfare Champions' - a project delivered by volunteers under the guidance of East Durham Trust to support people experiencing financial hardship.
