Our Work

Our Work

Catalyst Stockton’s purpose is to facilitate the growth of Stockton-on-Tees’ voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. We undertake a number of projects across multiple workstreams to ensure that the needs of the sector are being addressed.

Whilst we manage, monitor, administer and direct pilot projects to fulfill a need identified by the sector, we do not directly deliver services that other local organisations could address.

Our work stands as a testament to the strength and diversity of the charity sector at large; indicative of the strong and vibrant communities alive in our local area.

We are proud to serve our local charities, community groups, residents associations, social enterprises and non-profit businesses. Our privilege to help those who help others.
