Ryedale Charities Together

Ryedale Charities Together was formed in 2000. The partnership is a group of local charities who deliver a diverse range of essential services to people in need, within the largely rural Ryedale District of North Yorkshire.

We aim to address the problems of isolation and disadvantage experienced by people in Ryedale by providing ongoing support, information, advice and opportunities.

Much of our work is done with the help of volunteers who freely give their time and energy to support our activities.

We meet regularly to provide mutual support and organise local fund raising events and initiatives.

Your support for your local community is crucial

Why should you consider supporting a Ryedale Charity?

As small charities we do not have the support that many of the large national charities enjoy and we rely on charitable gifts, donations, grants and legacies to help meet our essential costs.

Supporting a Ryedale charity means that you are able to see the real difference your contribution is making in your own neighbourhood.

Please note that you can support either an individual charity or the Ryedale Charities Together group.

Will Week

A number of solicitors in Ryedale support Will Week, each year, and will write your will in return for a donation to Ryedale Charities Together. There is a minimum amount for this, but if you wish to give more, we very much appreciate your help and support.

How can you help?

Think about the difference you can make to the Ryedale community by leaving a bequest, making a donation or volunteering with one, or more, of our charities.

Every charity in Ryedale Charities Together relies on the generosity of donors.

If you are interested in donating to any of the charities listed and would like more information, then do please get in touch.
