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:

  • Homelessness
  • Addiction to drugs and/or alcohol
  • Reoffending
  • 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.

WY-FI is one of twelve Fulfilling Lives partnerships in England supported by funding from the National Lottery Community Fund.
