Yorkshire Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament

Yorkshire CND campaigns on nuclear weapons, nuclear power and peace issues. We are currently campaigning against the renewal of <a href="http://www.yorkshirecnd.org.uk/campaigns/nuclear-weapons/scrap-trident/"..., Britain's nuclear weapons system which will cost over �100 billion to implement. Locally we are also active in research and awareness raising of the role of local bases such as <a href="http://www.yorkshirecnd.org.uk/campaigns/menwith-hill/">Menwith Hill</a> and <a href="http://www.yorkshirecnd.org.uk/campaigns/fylingdales/">Fylingdales&lt... in "<a href="http://www.yorkshirecnd.org.uk/campaigns/missile-defence/">US Missile Defence</a>" and how they perpetuate nuclear proliferation and conflict globally. We campaign using a variety of strategies including informing and educating, research, lobbying, media work, direct action and demonstrating. A variety of campaign materials are available from Yorkshire CND and further information on our current campaigns is available from our website. Our network of committed activists and volunteers play a vital role in our campaigning work and we welcome new members or volunteers.

They work closely with the Engagement and Communications Officer who is funded by Macmillan Cancer Support and hosted by Healthwatch Wakefield.
We offer information by Facebook, Twitter, email updates, a quarterly newsletter and informative website.
We hold networking events and offer opportunities to join patient/carer panels, focus groups, research, conferences and training.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue

Yorkshire Cat Rescue is registered with the Charity Commissioners for England and Wales and is registered charity number 1160138 (formerly 1058218).

The charity exists to save the lives of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in Yorkshire and parts of Lancashire. It offers a rehoming service for such cats and accommodates them at its purpose-built centre near Keighley.

All the cats in our care are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given any other medical and behavioural treatment required before rehoming. We have a no-kill policy (unless recommended by vets due to quality of life). This means that we sometimes get chronically ill cats (or kittens) that can still lead a very good life (pretty much equal to any healthy cat) but have to have long-term medication and/or treatment. Any cat in our care will be cared for until we find him or her a home.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue was previously known as Haworth Cat Rescue. It has a rehoming centre based at Cross Roads between Keighley and Haworth, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

The charity’s aims are to relieve the suffering of cats who are in need of care and attention and, in particular, to provide or maintain rescue homes or other facilities for the reception and care of such unwanted animals and their treatment.

Your Back Yard CIC

We help communities to create places to be proud of. This might be by improving a local park or play area, taking over the running of a community centre to meet the community’s needs, or coming up with new projects to give young people something to do. Most of our work is with communities in the more deprived parts of the North of England.

Our work generally falls into one of the following areas:
Community Action Planning

We work with communities to identify what their priorities are, develop plans and put them into practice.

Improving Parks and Play Areas

We work with local people to tackle the poor state of many parks and play areas in many of our communities. As one local resident of a large housing estate put it, “18,000 people and nowhere to play”.

Support for Community Buildings

Every community needs good places where people can get together to enjoy themselves, where clubs and classes can run, where young people can meet safely and where the community can meet together.

Help for Sports Clubs

At Your Back Yard we have extensive experience of helping community groups, sports clubs and other third sector organisations raise the funding to get their projects off the ground.
