Who are Community First Yorkshire?
We are an influential, regional body that works with voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and rural communities across North, South and West Yorkshire.
We provide an important rural advocacy role, encouraging partners to deliver equitable services and facilities for rural communities and individuals, and help them to develop solutions that meet those needs. Our rural advocacy and influencing role is funded by Defra. We are a rural community council and part of the Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) network.
