East Riding of Yorkshire Council is looking to recruit new foster carers and supported lodgings providers, for children and young people, at a fostering event in Driffield next week.
Anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a foster family is invited to go along to an information event at Driffield Rugby Club, YO25 9DW (next to Driffield Show Ground), on Tuesday, 21 September, starting at 7pm, with refreshments available from 6.30pm.
An East Yorkshire-based firm of Chartered Building Surveyors is helping to preserve village halls, for communities across the East Riding, to ensure these vital community hubs remain standing.
The team at Delaney Marling Partnership Limited (DMP) is working with members of the HWRA, formally known as Humber & Wolds Rural Community Council, which is an independent charity working to improve sustainability and vibrancy of rural communities in the Humber region.
Around 100 delegates have attended a major rural tourism event to help make connections and grow their businesses.
Held at the Rix Pavilion, at Driffield Showground, the event encouraged those attending to network with each other and with a wide range of organisations that share the same aim of increasing the number of visitors to the area and celebrate locally produced food and drink.
Places are still available for business and community representatives in Driffield and Pocklington to find out more about what they can do to make the most of the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire.
Hosted by Welcome to Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the free roadshows will be taking placed at Driffield Showground on Wednesday, 15 February, from 10am-12.30pm, and at The KP Club, Kilnwick Percy, York, on Wednesday, 22 February, from3-5pm.
Building carer friendly communities was the theme of a multi-agency event which has taken place in the East Riding to mark Carers Rights Day.
Organised by the East Riding Carers Support Service, the full-day event which was held at Driffield Showground, gave organisations from across the area the opportunity to come together to explore and discuss the support and services available to the estimated 40,000 carers in the East Riding.
