Hull celebrates opening of new service centre
Volunteers, fundraisers and professionals from social care, health, police, education and voluntary organisations recently attended the launch of its new service centre in Hull.
The team in Hull will be delivering the following programmes:
Family Environment: Drug Using Parents (FEDUP), which aims to improve the well being of children living with adult substance misuse and Domestic Abuse: Recovering Together (DART), which aims to support mothers in actively assisting their child's recovery from the effects of domestic abuse. DART is a 10-week programme that helps mothers and children, aged seven to 11, who have experienced domestic abuse strengthen their relationship.
The team will also be supporting parents who struggle to care for children, aged four to 10 years. The Improving Parenting/Improving Practice (IPIP), programme aims to help build confidence in their parenting skills and give support for the family to help parents manage stress, anger and mood swings.
Service Manager for the NSPCC in Hull, Valerie Charles, said: "This is a very exciting time for the NSPCC in Hull. The NSPCC makes a huge difference to the lives of children across the UK and this new centre will help us expand our work and pioneer new approaches to address the significant child protection problems facing local children."
Peter Shipp of East Yorkshire Motors based in Hull, a long term supporter of the NSPCC performed the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
