North Yorkshire Strategic Partnership (NYSP) - For archive purposes only - see for current site

Welcome to the website for the North Yorkshire Strategic Partnership (NYSP). The website is a source of information and search engine optimisation about the vision and activities of the NYSP and a place where partners promote their activities through advertising.

The role of the NYSP is to promote the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of North Yorkshire’s communities. To achieve this it takes as its focus the Sustainable Community Strategy for North Yorkshire 2008/18 and the linked Local Area Agreement 2008/11 , which set out key priorities and targets to achieve the vision of making North Yorkshire an even better place in which to live, work and visit. Our aim is to increase the quality of life for everyone.

Voluntary Sector Involvement

The Local Area Agreement (LAA) must include a statement of the involvement of the Voluntary Community Sector (VCS) and local people in the design and delivery of the agreement. This should state how local people and the VCS have been informed, consulted and given the opportunity to participate in the LAA process and the delivery of outcomes.

It should also state how partners have considered the capacity of the VCS to contribute effectively, and how they can best facilitate the involvement of local people. The involvement of the VCS and local people should be reflected in all the four LAA blocks. The Safer and Stronger Communities block also includes a mandatory outcome and indicators on community empowerment, and areas will need to reflect and address this in their LAA.
