About Community First Yorkshire

Community First Yorkshire is an influential, regional body which works with voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and rural communities across North, South and West Yorkshire. We are an independent charity formed from a merger between Rural Action Yorkshire and the North Yorkshire & York Forum.

Supporting communities • Inspiring Action • Representing you

Whether you are a large or small group or organisation, we are your first port of call if you need practical support – we can help with everything from governance and funding through to strategic planning and community engagement.  If we cannot help you we will be able to signpost you to someone who can.
