York Flourish is a Community organisation which runs various projects in York, including two gardening projects for people with dementia and an accessible choir. We also support York Minds and Voices forum for people who have dementia.

We passionately believe that it’s never too late for anyone to flourish.

Having seen the impact our work has had on the dementia community in York, we are broadening our reach. We work to advance citizenship and community development, supporting social and community infrastructure.

We work to benefit local communities and their community spaces and places, as well as benefiting communities of interest.

We promote social inclusion by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society.

We develop the capacity and skills of members of the dementia community and other socially disadvantaged communities of York.
