Ask us what we're up to:
During Covid two members of Knaresborough Lions rang about 80 people once a week to have a chat with them.
They were people who'd had their shopping provided by their neighbours.
Some of these folk enjoy a chat on the phone so the Ring Round continues along with the occasional trip out and social event.
The people that talk to us on the Ring Round are amazing.
They've run businesses, managed engineering departments, brought up 6 children, fostered kids for 20 years, transformed gardens and homes, run community organisations, travelled the world.
We're always alongside them looking for opportunities for their talents to be used to benefit the town.
Can you help your neighbours?
Are you handy at:
· changing lighbulbs
· clearing snow off a drive
· clipping a hedge to clear a path
· sticking a carpet corner down
If you can do just one of those tasks and fancy helping out once in a while then get in touch with us.

Population Health Analysis
We've modelled demand for mental health service showing how much it increases over time.
Community Service Mapping
We're helping figure out what voluntary and community services exist to support those with mental health conditions working out where the gaps are.
We've identified 3 groups of people who miss out on accessing mental health services.
1. Families in insecure accommodation
2. Frail People
3. Frail women on their own with diabetes in a rural area
A forum we created which shared views of residents with organisations in the town. Over 20 organisations come together to try and figure out how to tackle issues such as:
