Local Support Services information

Find local support services

A brand new online directory just for North Yorkshire has been launched by North Yorkshire County Council. It’s called ‘North Yorkshire Connect’ and you can take a look here: https://northyorkshireconnect.org.uk/


The online directory includes local support service information, local groups and charities and many others.


As this has just recently launched, there are a number of groups that we’re aware of which are missing. I’m sure you’re also aware of many more or may even be members of some not listed.


Please therefore join or encourage others to add information by registering online.


Any queries relating to North Yorkshire Connect can be sent to customertheme@northyorks.gov.uk
