A Plan to Reshape our Economy: Pledge #3

21 October 2020


Many people have been struggling with their health, wellbeing and livelihood. We know that unemployment will rise, particularly in sectors like hospitality which are such significant employers in York and North Yorkshire. Already, approx. 1 in 4 businesses have made redundancies, whilst 1 in 5 plan to make redundancies.

Our Pledge:

Everyone at risk of redundancy or newly unemployed can access the advice and support they need.

Our Actions:

  • Provision of support for those at risk of redundancy or newly unemployed
  • Packages of skills training, work experience and support
  • Provide support for those looking to start their own business
  • Develop a programme of both capital investment, programme support and online resources
  • Building on existing Community led support programmes
  • Support the development of a network of Anchor Organisations.



Getting people back into employment.


Pledge stories:

Work to deliver this pledge has already begun. In their response to the pandemic, investment decisions and plans for the future, places, businesses, and organisations across the region are already reshaping towards a greener, fairer, stronger future. Check out the case studies below and on our website.
