About Us

On first glance, the City of York appears to be incredibly affluent however, it has the third largest gap between the rich and the poor in England. The Besom exists to help bridge that gap. The Besom in York was started by Rob and Sam 16 years ago and we have helped churches and christians give their money, time and items to hundreds of people across our city. We are here to help you understand more about God's heart for justice and to grow in your relationship with him as you help those most in need in our city.

The Besom in York Team consists of Becky, Maya, Claire and Jonny.

The Besom in York is a registered charity. Our charity number is 1133905. The Besom in York Trustees are Neil Hulse (chair), Hannah Ainsworth, Richard Grant, Catherine Spedding (treasurer) Hannah Thompson (secretary).
