Staying Healthy, Independent and Connected – grant opportunity

31 October 2022

North Yorkshire County Council is launching a grants opportunity for voluntary and community organisations to enable people living in North Yorkshire to continue to live healthy, happy and independent lives within their local communities and to reduce demand within the county for long-term statutory social care and health services care and support. This is part of the council’s overall commitment to prevention within Health and Adult Services.

The council is offering 25 place-based grants awards – each centred on one of the major settlements in the county. The council isn’t asking the successful community organisation(s) to do everything themselves but to help people recognise and develop their own personal strengths and to tap into the assets which their community has or could develop. The funding is for a 3- year  programme to start 1 April 2023.

Organisations will be able to bid for grants up to £15,000 pa (or £45,000 for Harrogate and Scarborough towns and £30,000 for Selby town).

Closing date for all applications is midnight on 27 November 2022.

All applications must be made via an application form. If you have any questions, please contact Sally Anderson, Strategic Service Development Manager by emailing
