On 31.1.17 it was announced that Harrogate and Ripon Centres for Voluntary Services (HARCVS), of which the Harrogate Easier Living Project (HELP) is part, will no longer receive funding from NYCC and the NHS to provide support for charities and volunteers, from 1st April 2017.  This will not have a direct impact on the services HELP provides from its Harrogate and Ripon offices, due to separate funding agreements which are in place until 2018. The HARCVS Board of Trustees is fully committed to the continued provision of these services and is working to ensure the best possible outcome for all staff, customers and volunteers in the light of this significant recent development.
