Reaching out

We cover the whole of Selby District and beyond and are keen to support groups, organisations and individuals from all areas. Whatever your need, our main role is to provide information, advice and direction towards the services, opportunities and partnerships that can help.

As the local Community Support Organisation for the area, we aim to provide a one-stop-shop for support, advice and signposting. Linking people up with where they need to be, and who they need to speak to. See us as the ‘Tourist Information for the Voluntary and Community Sector’!

If we don’t yet know about your organisation, group or opportunity, please get in touch and make sure that we do! It is vital that we can pass people on to where they can access the right support and services that they really need.

Career Development

Often knowing what to do with your career and how to get more from your working life can be really tough. We believe in proactive personal development mapping, supporting you to plan and implement action steps towards your career goals.

No matter how old you are, just leaving college, at a mid-point in your life wanting a change, or looking to get more from your retirement, we can help you to consider your options, think outside the box and find an exciting new path to suit you.

Linking you into other organisations, opportunities and pathways, we are here to support your next steps and help make this an exciting time, rather than a daunting one.

Volunteering - Advice

Volunteering

Volunteering is crucial for our community and helps so many people. Without the wonderful support, time and commitment of so many people in our community, vital services simply would not be able to operate.

As well as helping others, volunteering also helps to improve the wellbeing of those who choose to volunteer, supporting personal development, providing valuable new skills and experiences and boosting confidence.

We aim to help match volunteer needs, with volunteer availability, by putting organisations and volunteers in touch with one another.

If you are interested in volunteering or have a volunteering post that needs filling, please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

We are here to help!

If you’re in need of advice, please do get in touch.

If we aren’t able to help you directly, we’ll know someone locally who can.
