The Regional Rural Network (developed jointly by Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council, Rural Action Yorkshire and Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Forum) seeks to strengthen infrastructure services and improve the representation of the voluntary and community sector in rural areas at local and regional levels. There is a lead organisation for the Rural Networks in each of the sub-regions: Humber Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council North Yorkshire Ryedale Voluntary Action South Yorkshire Rural Action Yorkshire West Yorkshire Voluntary Action Calderdale Each of the Networks is funded by the Big Lottery Fund BASIS programme, which aims to ensure that voluntary and community organisations have access to high quality support that will help them be more effective. Key to symbols used in this guide: Works in: whole region, or specific sub-region(s) Membership organisation Offers direct services to organisations Network Voice/representation work

4 Guide 4 Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council (HWRCC) Works to improve the sustainability and vibrancy of rural communities across the sub-region, primarily in the East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. Supports and encourages rural communities to develop, so they can influence their own future and secure a range of community facilities and services. Tackles common issues such as housing, access to services and transport, and health and social care, which require innovative methods to overcome them in rural communities, especially the most isolated. Works at a strategic level with partner agencies including local authorities, Primary Care Trusts, police, fire and rescue services, and other voluntary and community sector organisations. Contact: Penny Brown t: e: w: 14 Market Place, Howden, East Yorkshire, DN14 7BJ Rural Action Yorkshire Offers advice, support and information to help improve the quality of life of the people who live and work in rural communities in North, South and West Yorkshire. Aims to ensure that rural issues and the rural voice are heard, acknowledged and addressed by decision and policy makers at all levels of government. Works with whole communities to develop existing skills and knowledge, and encourages them to have an input into how their local area and services are best managed. Works closely with other voluntary and statutory organisations. Contact: Bill Cross t: e: w: Unit A, Tower House, Askham Fields Lane, Askham Bryan, York YO23 3NU

5 5 Rural network support Regional Rural Network A partnership between the Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council, Rural Action Yorkshire and Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Forum. Aims to bring together all voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) that have an interest in rural issues in the region. This helps to raise awareness among infrastructure organisations and networks whose primary focus is not rural, of the special needs and interests of front line groups working in rural areas. Improves communication between specialist rural VCOs and the wider voluntary and community sector (VCS) by working together to run joint rural focused projects in the region. Works with the Yorkshire and Humber sub-regional projects to deliver meaningful consultations with front-line rural groups about their needs, priorities and concerns. Informs and influences regional organisations, polices and structures to ensure that the voice of the rural VCS is listened to. Ensures there is an effective response to emerging policy papers affecting rural communities.

6 Guide 6 North Yorkshire Rural Voice A three-year project developed by the Rural Working Group (a sub-group of the York and North Yorkshire Infrastructure Consortium) to work with voluntary and community sector (VCS) groups in the most remote rural areas of North Yorkshire. Aims to strengthen the influence that rural communities have on policy and services, improve access to support for the rural VCS groups in the sub-region, and strengthen the way in which infrastructure organisations working in rural areas of North Yorkshire deliver services together. Uses three key principles: clarity, consistency and collaboration. Contact: Sarah Bowden t: x 223 e: w: c/o Rural Action Yorkshire, Unit A, Tower House, Askham Fields Lane, Askham Bryan, York YO23 3NU South Yorkshire Rural Network Enables rural voluntary and community groups to have a voice with local authorities and other public service providers, by identifying challenges such as access to services, rural isolation and the economic downturn.
