A Hull-based project that helps young women threatened by domestic violence has been awarded more than £250,000 in lottery funding.

The £253,000 Big Lottery Fund grant will help the Hessle Road Network group to raise awareness of domestic violence among girls aged 11 to 16 through learning programmes and support. It will also be open to boys and young men.

Creative writing, drama and sports will be used to boost confidence among the young women who take part in the scheme, which is run in conjunction with the Domestic Abuse Partnership and Women’s Aid.

Officials at Hessle Road Network shared in a total of £458,935 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities programme with two other projects across Yorkshire and the Humber.

Big Lottery Fund deputy director for England Tim Davies-Pugh said that the latest grant awards were an example of how projects across the region were helping so many people and communities most in need.
