Action Towards Inclusion

North Yorkshire Partnership Secures £7.4m of funding for the Community and Voluntary Sector over Three Years.
We are very pleased to announce the Your Consortium has been successful in securing over £7m of new funding has been secured for the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP area to allow a new partnership of 61 organisations to ‘connect’ with community members who are furthest away from work and training.
 The three year project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
 The work on the ground will be undertaken by key workers and specialist intervention partners through a range of organisations in the voluntary and community sector.

This project is one of the largest funding streams secured for a voluntary and community sector partnership in the area.  It represents an exciting opportunity for local charities and voluntary organisations within the partnership to demonstrate their effectiveness in supporting those most distant from work, training and volunteering – offering flexible support to help adults overcome physical, psychological, financial and skills-related barriers and progress towards employment, training, education and job-search, whilst at the same time helping to combat a range of social issues including poverty and social exclusion.

 

We’ve just added a dedicated Youtube channel for the project here…
And check out our project launch video here…

 

We want to link in with local organisations and providers so that we can ensure this project adds value and compliments existing provision. We also hope that these events will provide a useful forum to explore potential referral pathways and progression routes for participants.
