Durham Sparks

Durham Sparks supports aspiring entrepreneurs and existing community enterprises to fine tune their journeys to provide more effective services within their communities.

The initiative comes as a result of almost £1m in funding from Durham County Council and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of their investment to help local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations, The project will support entrepreneurs from across the region over a three year period.

The project aims to identify relevant support and interventions that will enable both start-up and existing community enterprises from across the region to achieve their goals and objectives. The project is committed to making a real and lasting change in County Durham.
