Humber, Coast and Vale health and care partners unite to further support vulnerable children and young people with their emotional wellbeing

Children and young people with complex needs across Humber, Coast and Vale will benefit from enhanced services following the successful award of funding over the next three years to provide additional services for children and young people with high risk and high vulnerability.

The Youth Justice Framework for Integrated Care aims to build trauma-informed care and an evidence-based, whole system approach to providing integrated support for some of the most vulnerable children and young people aged up to 18.

The long-term aim is to create change, by helping more young people lead a full life, away from the criminal justice system they may otherwise find themselves in.

The expression of interest involved partners from across Humber, Coast and Vale working together to develop a detailed plan to enhance the provision of services. Commencing early next year, this group will continue to mobilise and oversee this project over the next three years.

Partners include representatives from the local councils, NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local mental health providers and youth justice partners across Humber, Coast and Vale – an area which includes Hull, East Yorkshire, York, North Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, and North East Lincolnshire.

It also involves voluntary community sector representatives The Warren, Cornerhouse, North Yorkshire Youth and Hull and East Yorkshire Mind.
