Showcasing good practice

volunteers who run some of North Yorkshire’s most creative and ground-breaking projects to support people with disabilities have held a showcase event to share good practice.

Sixty five people involved in voluntary sector projects in North Yorkshire shared their experiences on an Innovation Day, celebrating the remarkable creativity and innovation taking place to provide support for people with a disability living in the county.

Representatives from projects who had been awarded financial support from NYCC’s Innovation Fund joined staff from the county council’s Health and Adult Services at the Burn Hall Hotel, York lto present their schemes and learn from each other’s experiences.

County Councillor Clare Wood, Executive Member for Health and Adult Services, said: “The creativity of North Yorkshire’s voluntary sector needs to be valued and applauded.”
