We are a local charity and are mainly run by volunteers and always welcome more volunteers to get involved.  We link with parish councils and other local groups across our area to pass on news and share best practice, so that there is knowledge across Nidderdale of what services are available to residents.

We will always try to help residents with any query they may have, even if that means signposting on to other local organisations and charities.


    We are supporting our communities through a network of volunteer coordinators.  There are 13 volunteer networks throughout Nidderdale and Washburn, and when residents get in touch with us with a query or need, we direct them on the the volunteer coordinator in their village or hamlet, so that they can get a speedy response.  We have over 600 volunteers operating in our area.  Nidderdale Plus community hub also offers the following services to residents and we invite them to call or email us if they need support.
