Domestic Abuse is a topic that most of us do not want to think about let alone talk about, but it affects every community at every level. You or someone you know may already have been impacted by domestic abuse as statistically it affects one in four women and one in six men over their lifetime. It impacts on 750,000 children each year in England and it costs the UK economy an estimated £66 billion pounds a year.
Would you know what signs to look out for? Would you know what to do if someone in your family or community needed help? If the answer is no but you would like to know more then we would love to come and talk with your council members, give a presentation or just provide you with posters and leaflets for your community.
We would like to try and ensure those impacted by Domestic Abuse across the whole East Riding know that local services are here to help, give confidential advice and support.
The council has launched Your Life Your Way, a website hub featuring a vast range of information on how to stay independent and access support for both carers and East Riding residents. The website will help people self-serve and enable anyone to get timely advice. Visitors to the website will find guidance on staying active and independent. If you have any care needs there are contact details for vital services. Click here to access the website.
National Highways are planning to carry out maintenance and improvement work for the A63 for the rest of 2022 and 2023. Please see their leaflet for an overview of the work that is being undertaken.
Some of the work we will carry out will cause disruption and noise for residents and National Highways will make every effort to keep this to a minimum; where they can safely do so, they will work under lane closures or overnight to keep delays to a minimum.
You can keep up to date with work planned for the A63 here https://nationalhighways.co.uk/our-roads/yorkshire-and-north-east/a63-improvements/ where you can sign up for email updates on the page. You can also follow National Highways on Facebook – National Highways Yorkshire or on Twitter @HighwaysYorks
