North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) and the County’s Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have awarded a £1.4 million grant to a joint bid from Rural Action Yorkshire (RAY) and North Yorkshire & York Forum (NYYF). The money will fund support to charities, community groups and voluntary organisations across the county. To deliver the service in the most cost-effective way, RAY and NYYF have merged and formed a new charity. You can read more about the new grant and find answers to commonly asked questions about the merger on our Project Page.
