Awards Image

The Duke of York’s Community Initiative Awards was founded in 1998 by His Royal Highness to “actively encourage the development of community spirit” in Yorkshire and Humberside. Eighteen years on and it’s founding principles remain… to acknowledge the work of community-based projects and to reward those projects that add real value, that are owned and developed by the people they serve and that provide an inspiration to others. This year, at a ceremony held at Huddersfield University thirty nine deserving organisations received the Royal Award for their hard work in creating initiatives to benefit society. A further nine were awarded Business End grants totaling £18,510 (this brings to eighteen the number of BE beneficiaries who since the scheme’s inception in 2014 have shared a total of over £35,000) and a £5,000 Innovation Fund grant was presented to Barnsley Beacon Support Services.
