How to support us:
The Yorkshire Devolution Movement is an all party and no party group campaigning for greater decision making powers for Yorkshire. The fact is Yorkshire has the same population as Scotland and twice the GDP of Wales yet the powers of neither. The Yorkshire Devolution Movement is committed to the creation of a directly elected Parliament for the County of Yorkshire and believes that the undoubted potential of Yorkshire could be better realised if more decision-making was made locally. There are several ways you can help us achieve this:
Subscribe as a Member:
Probably the most effective way is to subscribe as a Member. Joining allows you to participate more closely in our campaigns, to attend and have a say at AGMs and EGMs and to influence the overall direction of the YDM. Members are the first to hear our latest news, receiving this directly to their e.mail address, and qualify to join our Members Facebook Group where they can comment on our posts and debate relevant issues with other Members. The standard amount for Membership is £24 per year but we will accept Membership for amounts from £10 per year to suit your circumstances. See payment methods below.
Donate to our Campaign Fund:
Another way is to donate to our campaign fund. As the YDM does not have large sponsors, we can maintain an independent pro-Yorkshire position but this also means that we depend on our Members and supporters for all our financial requirements. We can always use extra support! Here are some examples of what your donations could go towards:
|Building and supporting local activism
|Campaigning in parliament
|Online advertising and building our social media campaign
|20,000 campaign postcards
|Organising policy roundtables in Parliament
|Hiring a room in a town hall to set up a local group or for public meetings
|Banners for public meetings in Parliament
|Travel costs for speakers
|250 campaign t-shirts
|Sending a detailed policy briefing to every MP
|And with more
|Materials for organising lobbying of MP’s surgeries – A campaign pack for our local organisers to help us build these lobbies
|A lobbying presence at all three party conferences
See payment methods below.
Yet another way is to be active. This could be by writing relevant articles for our blog and to the media; by lobbying MPs & local politicians to speak out for a better deal for Yorkshire; by promoting YDM and our goals through your social media groups and other circles; by volunteering to actively participate in our campaigns and if you are really interested and have the time and commitment, even by applying to join the YDM Executive Committee. If you have been active or are interested in supporting YDM in any of these active ways, please e.mail us to let us know how.
A devolved Yorkshire administration will be achieved at some stage but the more support we get now, the sooner it is likely to happen and the sooner our County will be able to reap the rewards.
