Kirklees Rural District covers a vast area of generally smaller estates and villages. Although pockets of need exist within the areas, transport and isolation can be a problem, this is why it is even more important to have a good community spirit.

At present we are working with the groups and areas listed below. We also have individual volunteers who help with shopping, befriending, garden, activities, lunch clubs and more. Every group and individual is different and therefore the work and support we offer them is tailored to meet their needs. If you would like to get involved please contact
