Our mission for Ignite Yorkshire is to start a revolution in how Yorkshire’s industrial heritage is viewed, understood, enjoyed and looked after by young people. We take inspiration from the industrial past to develop skills for the future.
On this website we will share information about our partnership work with young people and some of the things we have learned in the process. We hope you enjoy looking around the site. All projects
