It will fund projects in Yorkshire & Humber which help to build stronger communities by bringing communities together; supporting communities who feel marginalised and building bridges between communities. It typically funds projects which focus on neighbourhoods and communities of interest and which promote inclusion of people experiencing social and economic hardship.
