Eleven projects across Hull and the East Riding have benefited from £430,000 worth of funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Seven primary schools have received around £10,000 each, but Hull and East Yorkshire Mind have been awarded the biggest grant of nearly £340,000.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind will use the cash to develop their support to people with mental health problems who are finding it hard to find or keep employment, training or volunteering opportunities.

Personal development courses will be offered including preparing for employment, mental health awareness, dealing with debt and anxiety and depression management. Computerised cognitive behaviour therapies will also be offered and will help clients to develop positive thinking strategies.

The awards have been made through the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All and Reaching Communities programmes. Awards for All provides grants between £300 and £10,000 to voluntary and community organisations and Reaching Communities awards larger grants of £10,000 and above.
