HARCVS Service Announcement

From the 1st April 2017 HARCVS will cease to provide:

  • The Advice Service for charitable organisations
  • Advice for people who wish to volunteer


These services will be provided by Community First Yorkshire, based at Askham Bryan near York. We are now in the final stages of completing the transfer of services and staff to the new provider. So from 13th March 2017 all enquiries from groups needing advice or from people wishing to book a face to face volunteering appointment should be directed to Community First Yorkshire.

HARCVS is not closing and will continue to have offices at Harrogate and Ripon Community Houses.

The HELP services, including Ripon and Rural Wellbeing, will not be affected and will continue unchanged.
