COVID19 update

Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University has been working throughout the pandemic to support the schools that we work with. Thanks to support from the John Armitage Charitable Trust, The Two Riding Community Foundation, Hudson Property, The Smile Foundation, Nurture a Child, Ice Systems and Netavo we have donated 817 laptops and tablets and 89 WIFI dongles to schools in areas of disadvantage so that children could access online learning at home as part of our stop the digital divide campaign.

Working with the Humberside PCCO, The East Riding and Hull CCG’s, The Angus Lawson Memorial Trust and the University of Hull we have provided 4,811 disadvantaged children with wellbeing packs. These packs are filled with mindfulness and wellbeing activities and resources that help the children understand and learn how to process and deal with complex emotions helping them to feel happier and improving their wellbeing.

Working with the University of Hull, The Big Lottery Community Fund, The Charities Aid Foundation, The Two Ridings Foundation and The Sir James Reckitt Charity we were able to provide 2,766 children with education packs. These packs contained basic materials like pens, pencils and coloured pencils as well as a book, a maths activity book, a wellbeing journal and a science activity box. This helped support children’s learning at home as some children had no learning materials at home.
