Community First Yorkshire has a rural advocacy and support service which is kindly funded by DEFRA.
Community First Yorkshire aims to ensure that rural issues and the ‘rural voice’ are heard, acknowledged and addressed by the decision and policy makers at all levels of government. Our work with communities means that we are well positioned to influence and advocate on current and future service provision.
Government at national, regional and local levels, regularly issue policy statements which potentially will impact on rural Yorkshire.
Feedback from communities is really important to our work. If you have a concern in your area, let us know as this helps to build a bigger picture.
