What is MANY?

Mobile Access North Yorkshire is about connecting people in the often forgotten rural communities of North Yorkshire using mobile technology.

Telling real people’s stories the project aims to highlight the struggles communities face relating to mobile access and how it impacts on their day to day lives – from the effectiveness of the Emergency Service networks to the safety of area’s and infrastructure that is affected by flooding; from people feeling isolated and lonely to tourism businesses being unable to connect with their audiences.

By enabling the latest mobile technology, the project will highlight how connecting people together can improve lives and enhance wellbeing and at the same time, influence government in their future rural connectivity policies. By exploring this, the project aims to prove that mobile access can support the recovery of the social and economic fabric of rural communities.
