Yorkshire & Humber Funding Ecology Report 2021 published

5 November 2021

The second Yorkshire & Humber Funding Ecology Report has been published by Rocket Science and was commissioned by the National Lottery Community Fund, Two Ridings Community Foundation, Leeds Community Foundation and the Yorkshire Funders Forum (YFF).

Key findings from the Yorkshire & Humber Funding Ecology Report 2021 include:

  • Between 2018 – 2021, voluntary organisations in Yorkshire & Humber received a total of £409m in funding from 20,000 awards made by 93 funders (figures from data available).
  • The value of funding from local funders has increased markedly from £26.3m (17 funders) in the 2019 report to £48m (19 funders) in this report.
  • But, by the population-weighted-by-deprivation measure, Yorkshire and Humber is the region with the proportionally lowest level of funding in England and the region is ranked eighth lowest out of nine England regions when it comes to voluntary sector income.

The full report can be found here Yorkshire-Humber-funding-ecology-research-report-2021_FINAL and you can take a look at the interactive dashboard in order to delve a bit deeper into who gives grants, where and to whom.

The YFF will be running a Funding Ecology Data Dashboard & Importance of Using 360Giving Data Standard Online Workshop on the 11th January with Rocket Science and 360Giving. The booking information will be on the website in the next few weeks.
