About Us

The Durham Miners' Association (DMA) provides a range of services for its beneficial members who are former Durham miners. These services include compensation claims, benefit information, tribunal representation and legal advice. We also support community and cultural activity. 

The most important event organised by the DMA is the famous annual Durham Miners’ Gala which, far from dying when the coalfield was destroyed, is thriving as one of the world's the biggest and most colourful celebrations of trade union and community spirit.
