About the project

West Yorkshire—Finding Independence (WY-FI) is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and aims to improve the lives and well being of people with entrenched multiple needs, who are currently the most disengaged and disconnected from services.

Beneficiaries of the project will have at least three of the following needs:

1) Homelessness

2) Addiction (drug or alcohol)

3) Re-offending behaviour

4) Mental ill health.

WY-FI is led by DISC and overseen by a board made up of Experts by Experience, representatives from the voluntary sector, delivery partners and statutory organisations including: local authorities, police, prison and probation, public and mental health.

“I’ve gained a lot of experience from being involved with WY-FI – it had helped me move forward in other areas of my life”- WY-FI Expert by Experience
