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!
GRANTS AVAILABLE CLOSING SOON
We currently have a range of grants available across Yorkshire for rural communities. Grants of £250 are available per group to set up new projects, activities, schemes, or in some cases to make supplementary purchases which will improve existing schemes. The latest grant and funding information is always available here, on our Twitter homepage, and also via our monthly eBulletin. Find out more.
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.
