How we help

We believe that charity begins at home, so we make donations to organisations that benefit local people and are based in the same towns and villages as our current and future developments.  

Many charities are currently seeing a huge shortfall in funding and support, and with our latest charity scheme we want to shine a light on the organisations and individuals that are carrying out essential work in our local area. See below for details of the scheme and how to apply.

Charities we’ve helped over the years

The Neonatal Unit at our local Airedale General Hospital provides specialist care for babies that need extra support following birth. Our £5,000 donation was used to update the seating and kitchen area and provide journey bags for new families. We also donated our surplus stock of PPE to the hospital early in the COVID-19 pandemic.

In late 2020 we undertook a virtual team challenge in aid of Manorlands, our local Sue Ryder hospice; individually running, walking, cycling or swimming the distance between Skipton and the two European towns it’s twinned with (a total of 912 miles!) We were very proud to raise a total of £9,651 along the way.

Creating beautiful living spaces that everyone can enjoy

Skipton Properties and Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust teamed up to plant more than 250 trees, helping to create beautiful, natural woodlands for all.

As a family business with strong heritage values, it is our pleasure to support the Trust’s vital work. Together we hope to inspire more people to experience the natural world and get out into the countryside to improve their wellbeing. Find out more about the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust’s work here.



How do I apply?

We are giving away £500 to a local charity every other month, ideally an organisation providing support to those directly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

If there’s the opportunity for us to provide practical as well as financial help (i.e. by team members lending a hand and getting directly involved, restrictions permitting), even better!

Please submit your application using the form below – we’d like to know more about your chosen charity, how the money will be spent, what practical help is needed, and the people the organisation supports.

When applying, please make sure that your chosen charity benefits local people, ideally in a town or village where our current and future developments are based – unfortunately we aren’t able to donate to organisations raising funds for international causes.

You’ll receive a notification to show that we have received your application. Applications will be reviewed in advance of the next charitable donation. Please bear with us whilst we review your application. We receive a large number and we’re afraid we can’t respond to them all. If your application isn’t successful in the first round it will automatically roll over into the next, and so on.

Thank you.
