Council seeking your views on proposals to reshape family services

From North East Lincolnshire Council:

PROPOSALS to reshape the support available to parents of infants and young children in North East Lincolnshire are now open for views from people within the community.

The plans being considered by North East Lincolnshire Council centre on delivering the same services in different ways to try and reach out to more families across the whole of the borough.

As a result, a move away from centring support in buildings is being investigated. Instead, it is thought that a combination of in-centre services at six family hubs, with more outreach and community work, would better serve the needs of the wider community.

The consultation, which runs until August 1, is asking people for their views on how early help services should be delivered, and whether there are any gaps in services.

Plans for new creative hub on the docks released

From North East Lincolnshire Council:

Plans for a new creative workspace on Grimsby docks have been released as they head into the planning application process.

World renowned conservation architects and historic buildings consultants, Donald Insall Associates, were appointed last year to develop plans to create the new workspace, and a planning application has now been submitted to redevelop a number of buildings in the Fish Dock area of Grimsby as part of the Grimsby Creates programme

Proposals have now come forward to transform Buildings 4, 8, 9, 10 and 11 on Auckland Road and Building 16 on Fish Dock Road into a new space for creative individuals and businesses, which will incorporate studio space as well as a communal space for art installations and exhibitions.

The design has been split into phases, with the first section being for buildings 8, 9 and 10 in the current funding round. Future development will depend on securing additional funding.

Humber Modern Slavery Partnership New ‘Anywhere Kids’ animation

From Humber Modern Slavery Partnership:

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) for Humberside has teamed up with the Humber Modern Slavery Partnership and local award-winning production company My Pockets to produce an animation and resource pack for parents, teachers and carers to educate 10–12 year-olds on the dangers of Child Criminal Exploitation.

‘Anywhere Kids’ uses aspects of real stories from real victims in our area to tell the story of how young people are groomed, coerced and trapped into exploitation such as drug dealing, forced criminality and sexual exploitation, and seeks to open a dialogue with younger children about some of the dangers they may face online or in person and how they might protect themselves from being targeted by exploiters and organised criminal gangs.

The animation, called ‘Anywhere Kids’ is also the second stage of the Not In Our Community 5-in-5 campaign bringing new and exciting, locally co-produced resources launched across the Humberside Police force area every week over 5 weeks. #5in5 Not In Our Community is a local campaign, funded and overseen by the OPCC, that aims to raise awareness of child exploitation, both criminal and sexual. In addition to a successful social media campaign, resources and stories are produced based on real life events that can be used throughout personal, educational and professional settings, to raise awareness across communities and help protect our young people.

We are currently developing a resource pack for teachers to accompany the film that will be launched with schools in September this year. If anyone would like more information please do get in touch with me. You can view and share the full ‘Anywhere Kids’ film on YouTube HERE
