What we do

The York Multiple Complex Needs (York MCN) Network brings together people with lived experience, frontline workers and strategic leads, providing a space to share experiences, forge stronger links and build trusting relationships that lead to more collaborative actions.

We are experimenting with different

ways of working .

We use Systems Theory

to understand the nature of connections across York and apply a new perspective to collaborative working.

We use the Systems Theory to understand and benefit the work going on across York.

We build and develop skills and capacities.

We run training and workshops on a range of topics, providing those around us with the tools they need to harness change.

We provide a safe space to talk.

We regularly drive collaborative conversation through our Network Meetings. This creates a focus point for new and ongoing work.

We speak to and engage with the wider community.

We're interested in absolutely everyone's opinion and invite those involved (and those who aren't!) to contribute resources to the Network.

We collate data, information and stories to drive learning and adaptation.

We aim to share all of this in a way which resonates with people in York. 

We multiply and strengthen connections.

We initiate and facilitate relationships between different individuals, organisations, initiatives, projects, and strategic boards.

We are constantly learning.

The Network seeks to gain insight from within the York system and from what's happening externally. This means we regularly 'take stock' and reflect on our work striving to make learning a goal, not a bi-product.
