North Yorkshire Together project offering access to sport and arts equipment

Rural Arts has launched a new project called North Yorkshire Together to help communities navigate the ongoing difficulties of the coronavirus pandemic.

Resource packs were put together at North Yorkshire Sport during the lockdown.

The scheme is providing essential resources to the county’s most vulnerable and isolated individuals.

Working alongside fellow county-wide charities North Yorkshire Sport and North Yorkshire Youth, the initiative will join the organisation’s skills and audiences to create a wide-ranging suite of both online and offline resources.

Building on the success of each organisation’s response to lockdown, the project will offer a variety of activities and resources for all ages, locations and needs.

Access to arts and sports equipment will be a core part of this strategic solution to promote health and wellbeing, strengthen communities and reduce loneliness.

Director and CEO of Rural Arts Max May said: “We want to make access to arts easier and more inclusive. We’re so thrilled to be running North Yorkshire Together, connecting people across the county with activities and information to ensure we all feel as happy and healthy as possible entering what will undoubtedly be a very difficult next six months.”
