    A Community Interest Company

Welcome to Revival North Yorkshire

About Us

Revival North Yorkshire – Our objective is to revive community spirit and provide a range of support, services and activities to improve the
well-being of the community, particularly the elderly, in the North York Moors.

We intend to:

  • Combat loneliness and isolation
  • Promote home independency
  • Revive the culture and heritage of the North York Moors through local traditions and activities

We are a Community Interest Company – based in North Yorkshire – any profits made are re-invested into the community.

Please can you help?

Revival North Yorkshire support older and vulnerable people in Danby, Castleton, Lealholm, Glaisdale, Staithes Sleights and surrounding moor and coastal villages.      

Many of our people have long term health problems, no transport and no family living locally, despite the lockdown lifting this can leave them at home, alone.

We have a fabulous team of volunteers – would you be able to join us? 

Even if you have just one hour a week that would be a great help. You can choose what you would enjoy doing from friendly phone calls or visits, lunch or magazine delivery, helping our Community Support Worker to take someone shopping or for coffee and cake.

To find out more please phone Debbie 07970955407.

The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded Revival North Yorkshire a grant to support our work in the community over the next 3 years! This will help to fund staff, travel, phones, insurance, the In Touch magazine and lots more. We applied for this funding before the pandemic when we were simply doing Memory Lane Lunches, as well as other activities, and before we had 7 part-time staff offering the support we now have available to people. Thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund for making this possible.
