Community Support & Volunteering

In North Yorkshire we are funded by North Yorkshire County Council and NHS North Yorkshire to offer voluntary and community groups advice and support. We provide information for people wanting to volunteer and help organisations wishing to recruit and manage volunteers. We also represent the voluntary and community sector to key stakeholders and work with the sector to amplify their voice on subjects that matter to them.

In South and West Yorkshire we work alongside other support agencies to ensure groups are referred to sources of advice and support.

Our Community Support and Volunteering North Yorkshire team has a wide range of expertise available to you to support you to grow your your project or organisation. However large or small, we are here to help.

We can offer you and your organisation a range of advice and information including:

  • Funding and fundraising
  • Governance
  • Marketing and Social Media
  • DBS training and safeguarding
  • Business and finance management
  • Recruiting and managing volunteers
