YORhub aims to support economic regeneration across the Yorkshire and Humber region through its 4 Good Fund. The Fund is part of the frameworks’ integrated management strategy to deliver its core workstreams – employment and skills, social and economic regeneration and environment and sustainability.
What is the 4 Good Fund?
The 4 Good Fund pot is made up from contributions from YORbuild2 and YORcivil2 framework contractors. During the frameworks’ tender process prospective contractors were required to demonstrate activities and projects they’d participated in which brought about social and economic benefit and were evaluated on their responses. Applying this approach has resulted in frameworks populated by contractors who understand the concepts behind social economic regeneration and can also contribute to the strategies which lead to its successful delivery.
Who can apply?
The YORhub 4 Good Fund has been created to support projects which are of benefit to local communities within the area covered by the YOR frameworks YORbuild2, YORcivil2 and YORconsult.
Applications must be sponsored by users of, or contractors appointed to, the YOR frameworks. To qualify for funding, projects must be located within the communities of organisations using YOR frameworks. A full list of these organisations is included in the guidance notes document.
Previous recipients from the 4 Good Fund are still eligible to submit applications in subsequent application rounds, however these may receive a lower priority with the aim of ensuring that the grant funding is distributed evenly.
What is the maximum grant awarded?
The maximum amount that can be applied for is £10,000 per project.
How do I apply?
The 4 Good Fund is currently closed to new applications. We will post updates on the website and social media when the fund is open again.
