HRH The Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award is granted annually to a small number of local organisations that having been subjected to rigorous and robust scrutiny are deemed to be: “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others.”
The Initiative, which was founded by His Royal Highness The Duke of York in 1998, focusses on encouraging and rewarding innovative and inspirational community projects in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The 12 community initiatives awarded funding from EN’s EN:Able Coummunity Investment Fund scoring highest on the evaluation scale in each annual bid cycle will be considered for HRH The Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award. Any of these top 12 projects wishing to be considered for the Award will subsequently be visited by HRH The Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award’s assessment team. The assessors will give their final consideration of the projects’ level of excellence and how well they work for the benefit of their local communities, in order to gain this prestigious Award.
