Have you got time available to help your local community?

Whether it’s an hour a week or an hour a month, you can volunteer your time on a particular project or supporting our workers in the office.

Gain valuable skills and meet new people. Have a look at our current projects and get in touch to discuss opportunities.

Got an idea for a project?

The Selby Big Local Community Chest funding programme is for individuals and local organisations supporting activities in the Big Local area. There are two routes of funding available:

  1. Funding up to £500 available for individuals or community groups;
  2. Funding between £500-2000 available to community groups or organisations

All we ask is that applications seek to support at least one of the priorities identified by the local community in the Selby Big Local Community Action.

Alternatively, whether you’re a local resident or represent an organization, if you have an idea for a project in our area that meets our priorities, get in touch and work with us co-create a project.

There are opportunities for Big Local to commission work, fund new projects or apply for external funding, so get in touch to discuss your idea – we’d love to hear from you!
