AVP Yorkshire is currently focusing on workshops in the community, although we hope to build an AVP presence in prisons in the future. We hold around 10 weekend workshops each year which are open to anyone.

We also partner with several organisations across the region to offer workshops and courses specifically for their service users. Most of our work is with adults but we have recently started partnership work with organisations for young people.

Our main hub is in Leeds and we are also active in Bradford, York, and Harrogate. Outside of Yorkshire, we are the contact point for the North East and East Midlands. Volunteers are always welcome if you're interested in getting involved.
