Community Matters Yorkshire has a long tradition of providing support for organisations and social enterprises. Our Business Support team has a wide range of experience, having delivered similar services for a national charity and Leeds City Council.
Welcome to Community Matters
We are here to offer guidance, support, and advice to not for profit organisations across the UK, including community groups, voluntary organisations, childcare providers, charities, and social enterprises.
Our aim is to provide a sustainable and effective hub of learning, support, and knowledge enabling local communities and voluntary organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of high-quality advice, information, learning and training opportunities accessible to all.
We know that it can sometimes be overwhelming when it comes to setting up a non-profit organisation or keeping on top of the latest requirements and opportunities available to the voluntary and community sector.
We have a team of experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly staff and volunteers who are here to help.
We have lots of free resources, learning opportunities and guides available on our site, and a calendar of training events throughout the year.
We also have a subscription programme which includes access to useful templates and help sheets, our funding database and ongoing email and phone support.
If there is something you’re not sure if we can help with, please do get in touch and we will try our best to help signpost you to someone who can.
We launched in 2010 as Community Matters Yorkshire offering support to families and childcare providers across the Yorkshire district.
We have grown and developed our services over the years and are proud to offer a central hub of expert advice and guidance to the community and voluntary sector nationally.

People have unique and often complex stories. We take timeto listen and understand before we offer our support.
We adapt to changes in policy and the law so that our advice and support is as helpful as it can be.
Our advice and support helps people and their organisations solve urgent challenges.
We help people and organisations to develop their skills and knowledge to solve issues within their communities.
Our priorities are determined by the real needs of the people we serve.
We work with anyone who shares our vision or helps make change happen for communities and the people within them.
We focus on giving the right advice rather than judging the people or the organisations who need it.

The Community Matters vision is to provide a sustainable and effective 'hub' of learning, support, advice and guidance, enabling local communities and organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of a high-quality service.
We do this in a number of ways through our various projects working with children, families and communities in West Yorkshire. We also offer wide ranging support to not for profit organisations and those managing community buildings across the UK.
