Your Consortium aims to improve the lives of individuals and communities through enabling delivery of a wide range of high quality services to build a robust social economy.

The Consortium is open to all voluntary and community enterprises – charities, social enterprises and others – who are based in York, North and West Yorkshire and the East Riding. We believe that voluntary and community sector organisations maximise any investment into communities and this ethos underpins all that we do.
