Stanley AAP priorities

Every two years we give local people the opportunity to vote for the priorities that they think we should take action on and on where we should focus our funding and resources.

We are updating our AAP Facebook page with any local information regarding the coronavirus. This includes changes to services or support in your area.

We use the results of the vote, statistical information (you can view this on Stanley AAP - profile) and local knowledge to make a decision on what our priorities should be for the coming year. If you want to see a detailed breakdown of the results from the most recent vote, contact us.

Once we set our priorities, we use these priorities to help us decide where we should look to take action and allocate funding. 

Current priorities

Stanley AAP's current priorities are:

Stronger Stanley

This group looks to support and develop projects which can support our children, young people and their families to live a happier and healthier life whilst also tackling anything that would help residents to feel safer at home, at work, and out and about in their community.

Local agencies that are impacted by these issues are involved. They include Leisure Works, Foundation of Light and Local Youth Clubs and representatives from Durham Constabulary.

Supporting Stanley

This group looks to support and develop ideas, which can improve residents' health and happiness making sure to include specific projects targeted at older and more vulnerable residents.

This group will look at tackling mental health issues and social inclusion as these were highlighted as key issues in the priorities survey completed by residents.

Successful Stanley

This group looks to support and develop projects that could help residents to gain employment and access to training.

Local agencies that are impacted by these issues are involved. They include The Enterprise Agency, Durham Works, The Business Network, our Employability Team, local training providers and other interested public representatives.

Task and finish groups

We take actions on issues linked to our priorities. To do this, we have priority task and finish groups. These groups are made up of board and forum members and representatives from relevant partner organisations.

At task group meetings, we identify and discuss issues linked to our priorities, and we consider project ideas and requests for funding linked to these issues. If we want to progress any project ideas, we then send them to the board for approval.

If you're interested in getting involved with one of the task and finish groups or would like to discuss an idea you may have for a project, contact us.
