In terms of education and young people, there is a Children’s Centre which provides support for under 5’s and their families, one infant school, one junior school and a secondary school. There is, however, no post 16 education provision within the town and pupils have to travel to take up further and higher education opportunities.
The A165 is a key road link for the town. Regular bus services are provided by EYMS and there is community transport provision within Filey. There is also a train station, connecting Filey to Hull in the East and services to York/Leeds and beyond (via Seamer).
There are a number of dentists and GP surgeries, although residents have to travel to Scarborough for the nearest hospital services.
There is an active voluntary and community sector within the town which provide a wide range of community support, leisure and cultural activities and help to maintain and develop the town, through participation in “in bloom” and “friends” groups and through civic participation as Town Councillors. The contribution of volunteers locally is very much valued and acknowledged.
There is a well used local library, some sporting and cultural facilities, including a concert hall at the Evron Centre. However, there are limited wet weather activities and the area lacks a public swimming pool or indoor sports centre.
