People's Information Network (PIN)


The People’s Information Network (PIN) is the largest on-line directory of services, support and activities in Redcar & Cleveland.  It includes the details of charities, community groups, sports groups, arts activities and much more.  You can also advertise events and one off activities and share your news.

More and more local residents and support staff are using on-line directories to find support, local services, volunteering opportunities and local good causes, and it is important that your organisation has a vibrant presence on this directory.

Inclusion on the directory is free!  RCVDA can help you to create the best possible message to communicate to local people.
