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.

Just back from a stroll in the sun with the lovely lady I walk with. She's 91 with failing eye sight & a painful leg, but loves the fresh air and giving herself a bit of exercise. Our conversation is always buzzing & her joy of getting out is so rewarding @MTMcharity #volunteer

Just the sort of thing that makes a real difference to aspiring community gardeners & still time to apply @YUMIYork @bec_horner @ecoyorkcyc https://twitter.com/greenspacesyork/status/1222505436391276544

Just had a look at the analytics for Live Well York in January. - looking good, particularly pleased with 3,919 searches for community activities which is a new record. @YorkCVS @AgeUKYork @healthwatchyork @CityofYork @TheYorkMind @YorkExplore @ValeofYorkCCG @YorkHumanRights
