Action Towards Inclusion Making a Sustained Difference.

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 and is managed by Your Consortium based in Knaresborough.  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 

Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council (HWRCC) is one of the partnership organisations that will be working on Action Towards Inclusion, offering keyworker and specialist intervention support.  They will bring their knowledge and relationships with local organisations, communities, businesses and services to this programme, opening up development opportunities at a local, grass roots level and working with local communities to create innovative solutions where there are gaps.

Susan Oliver is Delivery and Development Manager at HWRCC: we are looking forward to working in partnership with Your Consortium and other providers across the East Riding. Our main focus will be those people who have additional needs due to rural living be that transport, internet or isolation. Individuals and communities will play a big part in developing local opportunities for people and we are pleased to be part of the team which can achieve real change by working together.

Covid19 likely to have a negative impact on the delivery of affordable rural housing

A fall in property prices as a consequence of Covid19 could reduce the number of affordable homes that get built in the countryside whilst larger, more inappropriate development could get the go-ahead warns charity, Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE).W We know that many rural communities are supportive of small-scale housing schemes that are sensitive to the look and feel of the local area and which create homes that are affordable to local residents. But the fallout from Covid19 could up-end the viability of such schemes.
