Action Towards Inclusion



We are very pleased to announce the Your Consortium has been successful in securing over £11m of new funding has been secured for the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP area to allow a partnership of over 30 organisations to ‘connect’ with community members who are furthest away from work and training.
The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
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.
The work on the ground is undertaken by key workers and specialist intervention partners through a range of organisations in the voluntary and community sector.
