Natalie Belt, mental health transformation lead at Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It’s important that we recognise the individuals, organisations and groups that tirelessly support our communities to improve their mental health and wellbeing. We know of some fantastic work that exists across the Hull and East Riding area, and we are keen to provide further financial support that will allow more opportunities to take place.
“As an NHS organisation, we believe we have a responsibility to deliver high standards of clinical care, but we also acknowledge that meaningful support can also come from outside of our service offering.
“With access mental health services being more important than ever, we want to support those groups who can, in turn, help us reach and connect with our local people.”
