Talking to your child about online harm - resource for Ukrainian parents

Розмови з дитиною про неприємності в інтернеті 

A new guide has been specially created for Ukrainian families to help facilitate a conversation with their child about Technology-Assisted Child Sexual Abuse. 

It aims to give parents and carers some additional skills in talking to their children if they have concerns that someone is trying to groom them or is being inpatriate online. 

This is for our Ukrainian parents, who are caring in challenging times. We hope it helps those difficult conversations.

Methodist Church Riccall - Riccall Parish Council

Residents of Riccall,
Riccall Parish Council are in the process of buying the building previously used as the Methodist Church on Main Street. Once the sale has been completed and the building upgraded it will be used as the Parish Council office and meeting place. It will also be available for use by appropriate community groups. The cost of buying the building and upgrading it will come from the Parish Councils financial reserves and will have no impact on the precept. The money we save by not having to hire an office and meeting rooms will help pay the running costs of the building.
Riccall Parish Council.

Route 65 Riccall to Escrick

Unfortunately, works have been delayed on the Escrick to Riccall section of the route, partially due to damage caused to machinery as a result of a break-in to the site.
We had hoped to reopen this section in time for the bank holiday, but the revised opening date will now be 22nd April (subject to delays). Works will only begin on the next section (Escrick – Naburn) once works on the first section are complete. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Can You Volunteer Your Time To Scrutinise and Support Policing In Your Area?

We’re looking for volunteers to join our Stop and Search and Use of Force Community Review Groups.

We have eight of these groups across North Yorkshire who review and scrutinise our use of Stop and Search and Use of Force, holding us to account to improve transparency, legitimacy and accountability.

Being part of these vital groups will mean:

  • Learning about your rights and getting involved in how the police carry out Stop and Search and Use Force.
  • Working around these three common goals:
    • Check that police officers use their powers lawfully.
    • Check that the powers are used fairly.
    • Advise on public perception relating to Stop and Search and Use of Force.
  • Looking at national and local issues related to Stop and Search and Use of Force
  • Viewing real police body word videos and providing opinions on them
  • Reviewing data to check for disproportionality
  • Supporting police training and communications

What time commitment would we need from you?

The group meets three to four times a year. You can join either your local district group or additional wider district groups.

Meetings are in person, virtual and blended (mix of in person and virtual) and usually take place early evening.

You will also be supported with a two hour training workshop and shadowing opportunity at a Community Review Group.

If this sounds like something which you’d like to know more about or get involved, email:

We look forward to hearing from you.
