Welcome to Rural Action Yorkshire
We are a charity working with communities across Yorkshire to improve the quality of life for the people who live and work there. We provide a voice for rural communities to ensure they receive access to services that will keep them vibrant and viable.
We aim to ensure that rural issues and 'the rural voice' are recognised, acknowledged, and addressed at all levels of government. To communities we offer support, training, events and resources on everything affecting life in a rural area. This can range from sourcing funding to attracting volunteers, or running a community building to writing a business plan. Whatever area you need help with, get in touch today to find out how RAY can help you!
We'll list details of forthcoming Rural Action Yorkshire events here, or you can see them in the Dates for Your Diary section on the left of any page on this website. A full calendar of events organised by us, our members, partners and other organisations that are of interest to rural communities can be found on our Events Calendar.
