Support Workers

Following the award of grant funding from Yorkshire Agricultural Society, we have been able to appoint Support Workers in 4 Districts around the County.

These Support Workers have been tasked with supporting Clubs and Districts, increasing knowledge of YFC within Clubs and facilitating a wide range of activities with fun, learning and achievement.

They are busy helping with:

  • Running meetings
  • Planning events
  • Officer training
  • Club leader training
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Understanding “how YFC works”

The Support Worker Team members are:

Racheal Harrison


Ebor – Rachael Harrison.

Rachael is an ex Derwent YFC member and was previously a YFYFC field worker. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, Rachael is the “go-to” person for all things YFC.


John Craddock


Ryedale – John Craddock.

John was Yorkshire County Chairman in year 2017/18.  Together with his current role as Yorkshire Show Chairman, John loves all things YFC – and we are very grateful for his efforts!  He even finds time to play cricket, but he is actually a full-time farmer.

Settle – Sarah Leach
