Enter the Dragons' Den!

Enter the Dragons' Den!

Enter the Dragons' Den!

Is your community group brave enough to enter the Dragons’ Den? (It's not nearly as scary as it sounds!)

Two Ridings Community Foundation is inviting local groups based in the Harrogate District to take part in a Dragons’ Den style event to secure a donation for their organisation and to showcase the vital work of smaller charities and community groups in the Harrogate district. (Typically organisations with a turnover of less than £100,000).

This is a complementary activity to the regular grant making of THE LOCAL FUND for the Harrogate District. The aim is to help secure additional funds for local groups whilst also raising the profile of THE LOCAL FUND and the work of local charitable organisations in the Harrogate District.

Groups invited to present will also be offered the chance to make a small film to introduce their work which we hope will also be something useful that can help groups promote their work after the event.

The event will focus on one priority identified in the Vital Signs report for the Harrogate District: mental health and wellbeing. So we are particularly looking for groups working to promote good mental health or working with people with mental health difficulties.

How can I get involved? 

Please complete the Expression of Interest Form and return to by 30 April 2019.
