Welcome to the virtual gateway of the civic society movement in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Here you will find the latest news, issues and debates of civic societies around our area.
The Yorkshire and Humber Association of Civic Societies (YHACS) is the regional association of civic societies, and is supported by Historic England. Our membership consists of local civic societies and civic trusts around the region. We are members of the national organisation, Civic Voice.
The work of our societies includes a variety of projects, including anything from the regular review of planning applications, to gathering support for the protection and renovation of historic buildings, to the creation of new and vibrant public spaces to enhance our local communities.
At YHACS, we offer assistance to these local societies in the way of information, support and networking capabilities. We also participate in the regional agenda on behalf of the civic society movement, speaking for the views of these groups in their mission to represent their communities.
