YUMI brings people and Cultures Together

York Unifying Multicultural Initiatives – is a voluntary, intercultural network.  We provide opportunities for people who have come to live in York to meet with the local community, make friends, develop confidence and feel valued members of York community.  We’re open to everyone so that means YOU!! We support people with different cultural roots, languages and walks of life to share skills, learn from each other, celebrate traditions.
