North Yorkshire Together

North Yorkshire Together is a partnership between three county wide charities, dedicated to supporting North Yorkshire’s residents to be happy and healthy.

Rural Arts

Rural Arts

Rural Arts is a registered charity that delivers inspiring and inclusive creative opportunities that enrich lives and connect communities. Working across 3,500 square miles of England’s largest county, our vision is creativity in every community in North Yorkshire.

We provide over 400 events and activities each year at The Courthouse, North Yorkshire’s only professionally run cross-discipline arts centre, which is also home to an award-winning café, an artisan shop, and rooms to hire.

We programme 70 professional performances per year in rural venues and lead a range of wellbeing and employment programmes to support vulnerable people. Rural Arts was founded in 1993 and is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.

North Yorkshire Sport

North Yorkshire Sport

North Yorkshire Sport is a registered charity and the Active Partnership for North Yorkshire and York. We use movement, activity and sport as drivers for positive change. We want North Yorkshire and York to be a place where everyone enjoys moving more, leading to healthy and happy lives. 

Our work is primarily focussed on supporting and influencing wider systems to use movement, activity and sport to improve people’s health and wellbeing. This includes partnership working with a wide range of organisations, from Sport England to Local Authorities, as well as the voluntary and commercial sectors. To support this work, we run a number of direct delivery programmes countywide as well as at our own facility in Harrogate, the Bilton Health and Wellbeing Hub.

We provide opportunities for children and young people to learn and grow by:

  • Supporting youth work in North Yorkshire communities
  • Providing adventurous activities from Carlton Lodge Activity Centre
  • Providing training opportunities for young people and those who work with them.
