As children and young people make their return to school after almost a year of home-schooling, the local NHS is introducing two Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) to support pupils in Hull with their mental health and wellbeing.
People in Hull and the East Riding are being urged to take part in the biggest ‘thank-you’ the country has ever seen on the birthday of the NHS this weekend, culminating in an epic pause for applause at 5pm on Sunday.
This major country-wide coming together will thank all those who have been helping us through the pandemic and recognise the vital community connections that continue to support us all.
Since the nationwide lockdown measures were introduced in late March, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Hull and East Yorkshire Children’s University have been working tirelessly to ensure the 7000+ vulnerable children in the region are supported in their education and wellbeing.
The life-changing impact of coronavirus has left many of us feeling down in the dumps, and whilst we try to stay informed of the latest guidance via the news, it can often feel like everything is pretty doom and gloom.
However, during this pandemic, communities across East Yorkshire have come together to support one another, neighbours have helped neighbours, strangers have supported strangers and families have found themselves feeling closer than ever, despite the distance.
Criminals are continuing to use the COVID-19 pandemic to scam the public and organisations. They are targeting people looking to buy medical supplies online, sending emails offering fake medical support and scamming people who may be vulnerable or increasingly isolated at home.
Reports from the public have included online shopping scams where people have ordered protective face masks, hand sanitiser, and other products, which have never arrived and a number of cases have been identified where fake testing kits have been offered for sale.
A free online mental health and emotional wellbeing support service has been launched to help children and young people living in Hull, East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

NHS partners across the Humber are breaking new ground with an innovation designed to help people lead healthier lives from their smartphone and tablet.

A project launched during Hull City of Culture 2017 has been able to continue thanks to funding from Newground Together, NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
Building on the success of the project that was debuted as part of Hull 2017’s Creative Communities Programme, Song for Hull will return to the city, even bigger than before.
NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have this month launched a new ‘Handy Health Guide’ to support young people leaving care to know where to access medical treatment and how to look after their mental health and wellbeing.
The card, brainchild of Tom, 22, one of the care leavers actively involved with the Hull City Council Care Leaver team aims to help young people who have spent time in Local Authority Care navigate the often confusing health service.
Hull and East Riding students are taking a hands-on approach as they get the chance to experience an assortment of NHS roles.

At a time of year when we traditionally remember those who have served their country, local GP practices and NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group join growing number of organisations signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant in Hull.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a “promise by the nation” to ensure that those who are currently serving in the forces or have previously served, and their families are treated with understanding and always treated fairly.
Throughout October and November, Absolutely Cultured are launching Model City, a ground-breaking new project, supported by NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group, that will co-create high-quality arts and culture with young people from across the city.

The children of today will be the town planners, architects and decision-makers of the future and will decide how we live, what our cities and spaces look like and how we interact with them.
