York is full of great people doing great stuff. From football clubs to choirs, from community allotments to support for homeless people, our city really knows how to make things happen. But recent research showed that smaller groups feel isolated; they said that it is hard to access support/advice or to be heard. Many people said that a gap is emerging between established groups and a new generation of activists. Skills and knowledge (eg traditional charities’ knowledge of governance and new groups’ understanding of social media) are not shared – missing opportunities for everyone. So we’re offering some space to create more connections so that more good stuff can happen in York.
Who is it for? local groups/projects, social & environmental activists, anyone with ideas that can make life better for people in York.
What to expect? discussions, information, skills and resource sharing, peer support, and a forum for groups to develop a collective voice on the really important issues. Free refreshments
What to bring?
Your ideas, enthusiasm, experiences, questions.
Forthcoming network meetings –
There will be Joined up York events throughout 2019, so plenty of chances to get involved… let’s get together to plan a joined up York.
