Funding Partners

Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind is delighted to be supported by a range of funders.

The BIG Lottery has generously supported us since 2006. They currently fund four of our staff and enable us to recruit, train and support a team of up to 95 volunteers. Their support means that we can help many people throughout Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale to get more involved in their local communities and have a better quality of life. 

North Yorkshire County Council pays for one part time member of staff to deliver Social Prescribing in Whitby/Esk Valley to support peeople to become less isolated and more involved in their local community.

Lloyds TSB Foundation are funding a capacity building project in 2016-2017 to develop the organisation and it's staff, working towards a more sustainable future in light of the challenges in funding across our region.

Comic Relief is also a funding partner for our Healthy Finances Project.

We are incredibly lucky to have some great support from local businesses such as Dean's Garden Centre, Amelia's Chocolate, Creative Crafts  and a whole host of others who have donated money or raffle prizes over the years. Their continuing support is invaluable.

In 2016, SWC Trade Frames created the perfect perfect stocking filler for the (grown up!) loved ones in your life, the SWC Trade Frames 'Calendar Boys' 2017 calendar sold for £3. The brave lads at SWC and Yorkshire Coast Radio's own Paddy Billington stripped off to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK and SWR Mind with this fabulously cheeky men's health themed creation. The calendar was available from a range of supportive local shops including; Creative Crafts Scarborough UK , Dissent Skate ShopInfocus Photographic, Falsgrave Community Centre Cafe and Santander (Westborough) in Scarborough, West Building Supplies Ltd in Bridlinton;Chapter One Bistro and Chapter Two Bar and Hamby's in Malton. Check out http://www.thedefinitivecollection.co.uk/swc-calendar-boys for more information! There are still a few left over and you can get one from SWC Trade Frames or SWR Mind.

Local Housing Association Yorkshire Coast Homes have been long term supporters of our work contributing regularly through fundraising events and direct donations, including donating £1500 at Christmas 2016 from their staff fund.

McCain Foods (GB) Ltd kindly donated £1,000 to our crisis appeal and volunteered the use of their sports field for our  fundraising sports day in July 2015, in conjunction with Wonkey McDonky fund-raising group.

Boyes stores have been a wonderful support over the years paying for printing costs, donating money raised from their Christimas wishing well at their Santa's Grotto in Scarborough and Santa parade where we were the only charity allowed to collect donations from the public.
