Your Consortium aims to improve the lives of individuals and communities through enabling delivery of a wide range of high quality partnership programmes.

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 do this by providing:
  • Access to funding streams and income for partners
  • A comprehensive contract and grant management service
  • Capacity building activities
  • Strategic influencing


Our Values
Everything we do is based on partnerships. We are committed to demonstrating generous leadership and ensuring that everyone who is affected by our work, is involved in shaping it.
We believe in the potential of our partners and participants to thrive. We are committed to recognising and building on strengths and we aim to unlock the potential of everyone we work with.
We champion diversity and treat everyone fairly and with respect. Fairness and transparency are embedded within the culture, processes and procedures of the organisation at all levels.

We take the time to get to know what’s important for people we work with and to understand how we can best support them. We build relationships on a foundation of mutual trust and respect.
We have an ambitious vision and we know that achieving it will involve doing things differently and leaving well-worn paths. We are excited by this opportunity to take new and innovative approaches.
We recognise the huge challenges facing society. Yet we remain hopeful that a better society can be created and that our programmes and our strategic influencing can contribute positively to that change.
If you would like to join this dynamic, growing partnership then please click here and send us some basic information about you and your organisation.
