A royal award scheme has renewed its search for local excellence.

At the beginning of each new year the Duke of York’s Community Initiative starts its search to seek out, reward and support outstanding community organisations.

The scheme strives to recognise the work carried out by Yorkshire-based charities and community groups who, in one way or another, make a real difference to either their neighbourhood or to the people who live in it.

It culminates in October with a ceremony at which the Duke of York will present successful applicants with their citations.

The initiative is open to any organisation, large or small who, in the words of its assessment criteria, is “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others.”

More information and details of how to apply for a Duke of York’s Community Initiative award can be found on the website at thedukeofyorkscommunity initiative.org.uk.
