Help shape health services in Harrogate District

Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT) is starting work to update and refresh its organisational strategy and it wants to hear the views from its patients and carers on the issues that are important to them so that this will influence the health and care it delivers over the next five years.

We respond to consultations on your behalf.

Our position as an infrastructure organisation and Rural Community Council (RCC) means we use the intelligence we’ve gathered from across the sector to respond to local, regional and national consultations.

Our surveys.

During 2020 and 2021 we ran a series of surveys to measure the impact of the pandemic on the voluntary and community sector. You can find all the research findings and reports here.

Providing the voluntary and community voice.

To make sure that voluntary groups and organisations have a voice, we coordinate representatives to be part of policymaking committees and boards across North, South and West Yorkshire. Take a look at agendas, minutes and papers for the groups listed.

Community First Yorkshire also represents the sector on the North Yorkshire and York Chief Executives Group.
