This is a new fund that puts people in York in control of £240,000 to design and decide on grants to help the city better respond to people facing multiple issues including homelessness, addiction & recovery, mental health & well being, poverty and offending.
The aims of the fund are;
- To connect and help create space so that people can explore, understand, question and change systems that perpetuate disadvantage in York.
- To involve people who live, work and/or access services in York– both how the fund operates and what it supports (funds).
- To learn and share with others how funds like this can help change the ways things are done.
