West Yorkshire – Finding Independence
West Yorkshire-Finding Independence (WY-FI) delivers across the five Local Authority areas of West Yorkshire.
Between 2014 and 2020, we successfully supported over 800 adults facing multiple disadvantage and experiencing entrenched needs in at least three of the following:
- Addiction to drugs and/or alcohol
- Mental ill-health
Now in Year 7 of delivery, our aim is to support a collective and strategic approach to ensure people experiencing multiple disadvantage and exclusion continue to receive effective support post WY-FI.
Alternatives to prison can improve outcomes for women with multiple needs – a new report from WY-FI
‘Keeping a face for the world’ is a new report from West Yorkshire Finding Independence. The report focuses on women with multiple needs, considering how custodial sentences have affected women’s journeys through WY-FI. The report also considers how COVID-19 has influenced the recovery of women.
