About Us

Formerly known as Durham Rural Community Council, we are a well-established charity that has been providing support to communities across County Durham since 1935.  

This website has been designed to give you a flavour of our varied work, which is divided into 5 main themes – helping communities, promoting better health, supporting volunteering, enabling enterprise and getting voices heard.  You will also find all the latest news, events and jobs, together with some useful research materials in our resources section.

There is so much more to Durham Community Action than we can show you on this website.  Give our friendly team a call and find out how we can help you.  We always welcome your comments and suggestions. If you would like to get in touch please use the contact details below.
