Hambleton Community Action (HCA) is a Registered Charity based in Northallerton, supporting Northallerton, Bedale and Hambleton District.
We offer a range of practical interventions focused on enabling and encouraging participation, whether social, economic or within the community. Delivery is almost entirely through our wonderful volunteers.
Our person-centred approach to volunteering means that we take enquiries and build a volunteering programme that meets the aspirations and interests of the individual; where we are not able to offer an appropriate engagement, we will identify other opportunities and make introductions.
Our supported volunteering schemes allow people for whom volunteering presents extra challenges to help out in the community, whilst increasing confidence and employability through training and other support.
We also offer a pre-volunteering programme for those not yet ready to engage
We can provide administrative support to groups and smaller charities, as well as independent examination of annual accounts and payroll, through our Community Accounting Service.
We chair the Hambleton and Richmondshire Rural Transport and Access Partnership which focuses on more systemic transport issues impacting our communities. We host the HARBUS bus user forum.
