The purpose of the Small Grants Fund is to support and strengthen voluntary and community sector organisations based in and serving the Harrogate district. The funds are available to provide and increase participation and engagement, and to support new and innovative ideas.

Last year, 20 community and voluntary groups benefited from the council’s Small Grants Scheme, including Disability Action Yorkshire, Darley Community village shop, Short Mat Bowling, Friends of Valley Gardens and Workhouse Museum.



Councillor , the Leader of , said: The council is here to help community groups with great ideas to engage residents in projects which have a real benefit to the community.

Sometimes a lack of cash means that these projects are unable to come to fruition.

We’re keen to support these groups and the Small Grants Scheme is a fantastic way for the council to help, by providing much needed funding to get their ideas off the ground.

We have already received applications from a wide range of groups but it’s not too late to let us know about your project. I would urge anyone who represents such a group and feels that they have a project which will enrich the local community to put in an application as soon as possible.
