East Riding of Yorkshire Council recognises that the cost-of-living crisis is putting unforeseen pressures on residents and community groups across the county.
We are committed to supporting activity that will provide community activities to improve health and wellbeing, improve access to local resources & services and reduce social isolation. This fund is to help support new, additional activity or pilot projects rather than activity that is already running.
The Do It for East Yorkshire community grant is for voluntary and community groups as well as town and parish councils in the East Riding. Awards can be between £1,500 and £5,000 per group.
Between June 2021 - end of March 2023 £535,800.72 has been awarded to 172 projects across East Riding, offering benefit to 25,424 residents.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council have the Social Value Engine. The Social Value Engine (SVE) was developed through an innovative partnership between the council and private sector consultancy Rose Regeneration and is a web-based application that provides a robust way to put a monetary value on the intangible social benefits of any project or service.
