The West Yorkshire RAYNET groups work with local organisations and are active at fund-raising and organised events where they provide communications between marshals or stewards and the event control. They also make presentations and give talks to local meetings.

RAYNET groups provide their services free of charge. Members often provide their own radio equipment and pay their own expenses. Some supported organisations offer donations which the RAYNET groups are pleased to accept. Such donations are used by the Groups to purchase and maintain their radio equipment and accessories, or to further the aims of RAYNET.
