Lottery grant to break cycle of abuse in Co Durham

National Lottery Funding
The Cornforth Partnership will receive a £233,000 Big Lottery grant.

A charity which helps tackle issues such as domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse will receive a £233,000 Big Lottery grant.

The Cornforth Partnership, in Cornforth, has been awarded funding for its Healthy Changes project, a new scheme aimed at helping people develop healthy coping strategies through the support of community engagement.

It will see the introduction of new support services focused on healthy living, drug and alcohol awareness and domestic violence. There will be one-to-one sessions, group workshops and activities.

Their services will be open to everyone in the Cornforth parish but are particularly aimed at young people, aged 11 to 16-years-old, and residents living in poverty or with long standing health issues.

It is hoped the project will lead to the formation of new friendships and support networks, building a community where residents help one another.
