4 Community Growth York Logo

The 4CommunityGrowthYork (4CGY) project supports certain areas of the city so communities can take charge of their own development.

4CGY work to improve and maximise opportunities to stimulate the local economy in York, and the project includes:

  • local residents
  • public sector representatives
  • community groups
  • businesses

We're working hard to support communities in York, ensuring residents are getting the benefits and financial support they’re entitled to, helping people to find employment, or to start and run a business

As part of this, we're operating in partnership with local residents to grow a number of community hubs across the city, bringing together people to:

  • share ideas
  • explore solutions
  • provide access to ‘small step’ schemes, such as cooking classes
  • provide contacts to support community development
  • offer assistance with financial issues

Since being set up, the project’s area of operation has been defined as parts of:

4ComunityGrowthYork survey

The project team is currently working on a Status Report to assess the project’s impacts so far.

It aims to evaluate the project from by gathering feedback through a survey as well as by conducting in-depth interviews.

Through the survey we want to:

  • find out how well known the project is
  • gather information on the impact of the project
  • learn how we can improve our work

The survey closed on Sunday 19 August 2018.

The associated Status Report will be published in September 2018.
