We also manage bookings for Community House meeting rooms at reception.

Harrogate Community House Resource Centre
The Resource Centre is managed and stocked by Harrogate & Ripon Centres for Voluntary Service (HARCVS) and is open to all voluntary and community organisations working in the Harrogate District.
The Centre contains:
Leaflets on support and advice services for individuals and groups in the local area;
Computer Databases designed to help voluntary organisations identify trusts and other funders most likely to provide finance for their particular project;
A library containing books on topics including fundraising, grant-making trusts, creating and managing new projects, volunteer management and promoting your organisation’s activities.
You can borrow items free of charge for up to two weeks, though a few of the books are for reference only. If you want to know whether a particular book is available or to ask for recommendations that may help your group, please call HARCVS Information Officer, Angela Jones, on 01423 504074 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I display information about my organisation at Community House?
Many people visit Community House each week and pass through the Information Centre to attend meetings. Providing us with up-to-date leaflets about your services will enable you to reach more people in the area. It will also help HARCVS to signpost visitors and callers to your service.
If you are a local voluntary organisation or community group and would like to display your leaflets in the Resource Centre, please send these to Community House, for the attention of Angela Jones.
