WY-FI Project

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs


Adversity, Trauma and Resilience Knowledge Exchange

WY-FI has taken part in a three-day knowledge exchange event, hosted by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and the West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit.

We led a co-production workshop, called ‘Co-producing a MNingful Life’, where we shared some audio clips from WY-FI network members and staff past and present.

Our very own Sue Northcott and Mark Crowe were also speakers at the event, sharing WY-FI’s learning on co-production and co-production in research.

Here you can view and download the workshop slides, as well as play the audio and video clips from the session.

The Walk of Life

Exclusive first play of co-produced film

 by wyfiproject

‘The Walk of Life’ is a short film that’s been co-produced by a group of young people with lived experience of multiple disadvantage, with the support of Life Experience, a Leeds-based social enterprise.

The film’s drawings, animations, poetry, characters and concepts were developed by the group to creatively express their experiences of accessing services.

The film also supports our latest report, ‘Closing the Revolving Door’, which examines the support available for young people experiencing multiple disadvantage, and how this could be improved.
