Please remember to use the YLCA website 'Request Advice' system for your council's/parish meeting's advice queries and if we ask you for more information to enable us to deal with an enquiry, please send it through the website system, not via the e-mail that our request is sent on, (as this is a no reply address).

Please use for all other queries (training, webinars, publication orders etc).
