Adding an organisation

If you’re already registered log in and click on ‘Add organisation’

If you’re not registered go back to the Register screen and click on ‘Register now’

Once registered you will be able to add an organisation.

You can add as many details as you like before submitting them, but as a minimum we ask for:

  • Description – what your organisation does and who it’s for.
  • Venue – where your organisation meets or has its public office.
  • Contact - any ways of contacting your organisation that you’re happy to publish on the Web.

Click on Submit and the details will come through to us.

We check your group’s not already on, and can be included, and email you to say the entry’s been approved. Community Directory isn’t staffed all the time, so this may be the same day, or up to a few days.

Please then scroll down through the options of other things you can add to the entry including:

  • Images
  • Events (concerts, plays, sales, open days, etc.)
  • Activities (dates of regular meetings or activities)
  • Key words (words not in the group name that people might search on)

If you have any queries please contact Community Directory.

Adding an event or activity

Events and activities need to be added through an organisation entry - usually the entry of the group running them, although this isn’t crucial.

Don’t have the login for your organisation:

If your group isn’t listed please see ‘Adding an organisation’.

If you add an organisation simply to add an event your organisation details may not be published - e.g. if you’re based outside Kirklees – but you can add a Kirklees event in the normal way.

If you’re an individual organiser, not part of a group, then create an ‘organisation’ for yourself. This won’t be published, but you can then add an event.

Once in your organisation entry, scroll down to the Events and Activities field.

Events are essentially ‘one-off’ items e.g. concerts, plays, sales.

Activities are regular meetings or activities, usually on a weekly or monthly basis.

On the public screen for Community Directory, events are displayed as What’s On and activities are under Things to Do. Both are also displayed on the Council’s events page

More help in how to add events and activities is given as part of those fields.

Editing an existing entry

If your group is already on Community Directory the login holder is likely to be the main contact shown for the group.

If he or she can’t remember it there is a forgotten login facility on the login page and this should work through the main contact’s email.

If it doesn’t work, or if the main contact has left the group, please contact us on Please mention the name of the organisation you’d like to edit, and your connection to this organisation.
