A Community First Yorkshire event

North Yorkshire Equality and Inclusion Partnership

North Yorkshire Equality and Inclusion Partnership Meeting Wednesday 10 April 2024, 2-4pm 

This Partnership brings together colleagues from the voluntary and community sector and partner organisations from across North Yorkshire to discuss a range of topics. The aims of the meetings are to provide a forum to:

  • increase partners’ understanding of the issues facing people with protected characteristics in North Yorkshire
  • ensure organisations making decisions about services delivery and investment are aware of the issues people face, and take steps to address the issues
  • create links between partners to share good practice, plans and provide feedback on plans and changes to services.

We always want to make sure these meetings cover the things that are of interest to you. If you have any items for the agenda please contact caroline.oneill@communityfirstyorkshire.org.uk before the meeting.
