Almscliffe Village Hall

As part of our work, we are supporting village halls, community centres, and other venues to look at new activities and projects in their villages which can attract new people to their venue and make their building more accessible, in particular to people living with dementia, older and vulnerable people, and those at risk of social isolation. There are still some £250 Small Grants available, and these events will be the last chance to apply for them! Two events are running which are open to all volunteers and committees in North Yorkshire, with attendance from additional organisations such as Dementia Action Alliance, your local CVS, and representatives from North Yorkshire County Council.


The events will include:


-       One-to-one surgeries helping volunteers to submit a Community Friendly Buildings Small Grant application, find out about the grant monitoring requirements, or develop their project plan.

-       Workshops and training in improving accessibility and becoming dementia friendly, from local Dementia Friends and Champions

-       RAY staff on hand to discuss what other support or funding could be available for your building or village, including ideas from our 52 Things campaign, the Village SOS scheme and the Good Neighbours project.

-       Information about the support and resources available


These two events will be exactly the same, so feel free to book onto the one closest to you.


There will be light refreshments and snacks available on the day – if you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.


The Scarborough event will take place on Thursday 18th June at Scalby & Newby Community Hall, YO13 0RA |

The Harrogate event will take place on Tuesday 23rd June at Almscliffe Village Hall, LS17 0AN |
