Town in The Community
The Harrgate Town Community Foundation began operating in 2014 and in it's first three years the Foundation was twice the recipient of national awards for the most innovative community projects.
Harrogate Town Football Foundation C.I.C is a community investment, not for profit, organisation. The aim of the foundation is to provide opportunities for individuals to enhance their opportunities in life.
To that end we provide access to training programmes as well as to work-based qualifications, both of which lead to better understanding of health, exercise and diet issues.
Through this pathway we hope to build greater self-esteem, improve life skills and ensure a better economic outlook for each participating in the different projects.
We are committed to building philanthropic resources to sustain, develop and grow healthy communities across Harrogate District. We aim to achieve this by continuing to work closely with strategic partners including (but not limited to):
· Harrogate Borough Council
· Job Centre Plus
· Harrogate Homeless Project
· Lifeline Harrogate
· North Yorkshire Horizons
· Dementia Forward
· Harrogate District Hospital
· The Pupil Referral Unit
· Local Army units
The projects we have been involved in so far include :
The Foundation’s work has been supported by a number of funding bodies including The Conference Trust, The Premier League, Player’s Football Association, The Big Lottery, The People’s Trust, The Heart Foundation as well as The Department for Works & Pensions. We have also enjoyed the support of private business with generous donations from CNG, Annapurna, Strata Homes, and The Howard Matthews Partnership.
