Strategic framework for tackling loneliness in North Yorkshire

Community First Yorkshire would like your feedback on two frameworks for preventing and tackling loneliness in North Yorkshire.

One is a strategy developed at district level through a project funded by West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health Care Partnership. This is specific to the Harrogate area and takes a localised approach to tackling loneliness in Harrogate, Ripon and beyond.

The other is a county-wide framework which has been developed as part of The Loneliness Campaign, a project funded through the National Lottery Community Fund, North Yorkshire County Council and Defra to help support and inspire more local action to 'turbo charge' the county's response to tackling loneliness.

You can view both frameworks and give your feedback

Harrogate strategic framework consultation
TLC county-wide strategic framework consultation

Your views mean a great deal to Community First Yorkshire. Whether you work or volunteer for a charity, group or community organisation, or work in the public or the private sector they really appreciate you taking time to complete the survey(s).

The consultation for both strategies are open until midnight on Sunday 1 December 2019.

Local Council Tax Scheme (LCTS) for working age households consultation

In April 2013, the government changed the way in which financial assistance is provided to council taxpayers on low incomes to help pay their council tax. This change meant councils had to develop a local scheme to support low income working age households.

The proposed changes to the locally-agreed scheme being consulted on in this document will only effect working age claimants. The changes we are consulting upon do not affect people of pension age. The current working age scheme supports 3,910 households and costs approximately £3.54m each year. The costs of the scheme are funded directly through a reduction in the amount of council tax collected to support local services.

We would like to hear your views on the proposals being made by completing the consultation questionnaire

The consultation closes on the 16 December 2019.

Draft equalities vision and objectives

We are currently consulting on our equality vision and objectives for 2020-2024. We are developing a vision and objectives to make sure the district becomes a fairer and more equal place to live and work. We would like to receive your views on our draft proposals prior to council adopting and publishing them.
