North Yorkshire Flood Recovery Fund
In light of recent events, Two Ridings Community Foundation is asking for donations so that we can continue to support people affected by flooding incidents, including those in February 2020.
Two Ridings Community Foundation has been making financial awards to households and small businesses in Swaledale & Wensleydale affected by the floods. Any donations we received in response to the flooding in July 2019 will only be used to help those affected by that flooding incident.
Money donated will be used to support households where water went into houses (but not where it only went into gardens or garages) and small businesses where personal hardship has arisen as a result of premises being flooded. Our priority in the immediate aftermath of the floods will be to provide immediate straightforward financial support to people affected by the floods to help with urgent needs like the costs of living in temporary accommodation, or items to people so they could stay in their homes – e.g. costs of running dehumidifiers. This will be followed by ongoing support to those with continuing needs.
