- promoting the inclusion of people experiencing the most social and economic hardship,
- that enable people to be agents of change in their own lives and communities,
Projects applying for funding need to:
- be located within the Yorkshire and Humber region,
- be able to demonstrate longer term financial and project planning, involving multiple streams of funding,
- demonstrate innovative or creative ways of addressing areas of concern,
- demonstrate how change and transformation can be achieved in one or more of the following ways:
- creating greater inclusivity by breaking down barriers of fear based on for example religious, cultural, ethnic or social difference or financial hardship,
- integrating marginalised groups into mainstream society and promoting a welcoming culture,
- aiding the integration of marginalised groups through environmental projects,
- developing greater understanding of these issues through carrying out research.
