How to Do it For East Yorkshire: A new one-stop shop for community groups

A new website has been launched to help community groups easily access information and resources that can help them deliver community activity and develop their organisations.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s regeneration and funding team have designed How to Do it For East Yorkshire as a one-stop shop to make it easier for existing and developing voluntary community groups to access advice and support.

The online platform is now live, providing a gateway to a wealth of information from reputable national and local sources, including the Government and the council.

As well as providing answers to many frequently asked questions, such as how to set up an organisation, establish effective governance, manage events and secure licenses, the site will help organisations put themselves in a better position to secure external funding.

It will also encourage users to provide feedback and suggestions for additional content they would like to see included.

Councillor Anne Handley, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Volunteers form the backbone of thriving communities, making substantial contributions to the local economy.

“How to Do it For East Yorkshire will be an invaluable resource for community groups, simplifying access to funding, and empowering them with the knowledge and guidance they need to grow.

“Whether you are just setting up, organising a public event or want advice for your social enterprise, the How to Do it For East Yorkshire website is the place to start.”
