Community Fund

As a housebuilder, Durkan Homes works at the heart of local communities. We build high quality homes to create new neighborhoods people love, that also enhance existing places.

Our Community Fund offers support to charities and local organisations in the areas where we build new homes.

This scheme funds community projects that help meet local needs. Applicants that are eligible can apply for up to £2,500 for their project.

To find out if your organisation and project is eligible for funding, please read our Guidance for Applicants document.

We are only accepting applications from organisations or projects near our developments in Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. In the coming years, we hope to expand the scheme to accept applications from other areas.

Please take the time to go through the guidance document before submitting your application.
