The Door Youth Project received a £3,000 grant to support its summer holiday programme.
Brendan Conboy, Chief Executive of The Door said the money will allow the charity to provide a range of activities for up to 200 young people.
“This money means we can provide a good quality summer service that is well planned and well staffed. It will make a huge amount of difference.”
Activities will include vocal coaching, woodworking, craft and sports. The grant will be used to buy supplies for the workshops and pay for staff support.
“A recent survey of residents in the town showed that young people and the provision of services for them was a priority. The town council is delighted to support this excellent summer programme which will keep young people entertained and help them learn new skills,” said Stroud mayor Amanda Moriarty.
The Summer Street Allotment Association received a £500 grant for the renovation of the communal shed. The money will be used for a new roof. The shed is used to house allotment machinery and is a hub for communal events.
Spaniel in the Works Theatre received £500 to support the Stroud Theatre Festival initiative. The festival, which will be held September 6-7, will see 12 companies performing in the town.
