VCSE non-selective hustings for Combined Authority Mayoral candidates

7 March 2024

Residents in York and North Yorkshire will elect the first ever York and North Yorkshire Mayor on 2 May for the new Combined Authority, giving people more control over investment in our region and how public services are run. But what does this mean for the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector?

What questions would you ask of Mayoral candidates about their plans to support charities, community groups and social enterprises in our region?

Come along to a non-selective hustings at the Priory Street Centre in York on 16 April (10am – 12 noon) being hosted by Community First Yorkshire and York CVS. People who work or volunteer in the sector are invited to hear from Mayoral candidates and pose questions.

Book your place here.

Not able to attend, email your questions to and we will aim to ask these on your behalf during the hustings.
