The West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s Culture, Heritage and Sport Framework is their plan to grow and sustain culture, heritage and sport in the region.

The Mayoral-led West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) calls everyone to have their say on West Yorkshire’s culture, heritage and sport framework!

The Culture, Heritage and Sport Framework sets out how the West Yorkshire Combined Authority plans to grow and sustain the region’s culture, heritage, and sport.

WYCA is committing £11.4m to culture, heritage and sport over the next three years, and the draft framework is part of the Mayor’s pledge to lead a Creative New Deal. The aim is to ensure West Yorkshire’s creative industries are part of the broader post-covid recovery strategy. It proposes four themes to be the focus of WYCA’s work:

  • People – everyone in West Yorkshire can enjoy culture, heritage, and sport
  • Place – West Yorkshire is a creative, sustainable, and vibrant region with culture heritage and sport at its heart
  • Skills – people can build a great career in culture, heritage or sport in West Yorkshire
  • Business – West Yorkshire is the place to grow your creative business

WYCA has set out why they think each area of work is important, their ambitions, the things they will do (interventions) to achieve these ambitions, and how we can all measure the impact of this work.

WYCA would like to hear what you think of their proposed framework. This is your chance to help them shape it.

To take part, please visit www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/csf before 11.59pm on Sunday 18 September 2022.
