Thirteen Hull schools and their pupils will benefit from a new pilot emotional health project after a successful £500,000 lottery bid.

The city is one of 12 areas nationwide selected for the trial scheme, which runs until December next year.

The 10-14 age group and their carers and parents are the beneficiaries of the new Big Lottery Fund-financed Head Start initiative.

It will help the children cope with their difficulties and worries.

These include body image, peer pressure, bullying, moving schools and exam stress. .

A YouTube channel and an online app will be among the digital tools available for supporting the children helped by the scheme.

The city council in Hull, schools, schools, voluntary sector groups such as Child Dynamix and Cornerhouse, and others are among the parties organising the project.

This partnership will be able to apply for a grant worth £10 million if the trial is successful. This could see the project rolled out Hull-wide by 2020.
