What does it do?
YOR4Good provides grants of up to £10,000 to community groups to support local economic regeneration projects.
Projects can also be initiated directly by contractors local to the area in which they are working while they are on site.
YOR4Good is governed by a panel of contractors appointed to the frameworks and representatives from the YORcivil2 and YORbuild2 frameworks.
Total funds awarded
Since YOR4Good was established in 2011, the contributions from our YORbuild and YORcivil contractors have enabled us to support 160 projects through donations exceeding £1.1million across the Yorkshire & Humber region.
Who can apply?
YOR4Good accepts applications from community groups and organisations located within the area covered by YORhub’s frameworks.
Applications must be sponsored by users of the frameworks or contractors appointed to them, and their projects must contribute to one or more of YORhub key themes.
