Here are some groups and organisations that can help with funding matters and development for sporting and community projects:

  • OneFamily Foundation
    Runs two rounds of awards each year, handing out several awards of £5,000 and £25,000. They are available to apply for every year - customers nominate causes they think would improve their community and there is a public vote to decide which projects are funded. These can be of benefit to local sports teams and clubs, for example buying new equipment or refurbishing facilities
  • Sportivate
    North Yorkshire Sport manage this project which funds sporting activity for 14-25 year olds in North Yorkshire. Their website has more information, including eligibility criteria, application forms and guidance notes
  • Sport England funding
    Sport England has a range of funding streams open to a wide range of organisations. These include sports clubs, voluntary or community organisations, local authorities, schools, colleges and universities
  • Harrogate and area council for voluntary service
    Harrogate CVS produces a monthly funding bulletin with the latest details of grants for various types of voluntary projects
