Information about the organisations and individual volunteers who have won or received nominations in our annual community awards.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update - postponement until further notice

The community awards have been paused in light of the current circumstances.


Community organisations and individual volunteers make a huge contribution to lives across North Yorkshire. Aiding the council in delivering critical services and providing social networks which reduce isolation and enable people to live independently for longer.

They help to deliver a wide range of critical services, from organising luncheon clubs and helping in schools, running cultural and social events, walking dogs and doing shopping for elderly neighbours, helping out at cub scout and brownie guide groups, managing animal shelters and community libraries, and so much more.
