News Update 30th January

January 30, 2021

The past few months have been “Typical City”, a run of very good form, followed by a few poor games, green shoots of a recovery, then another defeat.

Hopefully Grant McCann and the boys can steady the ship today against Swindon Town at the (sadly empty) KCOM.

HCST’s Partners of the Week.
In this week’s Partner of the Week section, we have an in-focus look at two HCST Community Partners –  Hull and East Yorkshire Mind  & Dementia Friendly East Riding.

Our first partner of the week is Hull and East Yorkshire Mind .

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is a local mental health charity, working so that everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.

The impact of mental illness can be devastating. Not only for those directly affected but also their families, friends, colleagues and loved ones.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind helps people improve their mental health. They work with individuals to support them in a way that works for them- building confidence and social networks, helping people establish a safe place to live and call home, helping people to find hope and to recover.

They also work to prevent mental ill health through education and prevention work, and we campaign to challenge the stigma and discrimination that sometimes occurs with mental health problems.

Mind have linked with the English Football League to promote awareness about mental health, and HCST have partnered with the Hull and East Yorkshire branch to tie in with that.

More information about Hull and East Yorkshire Mind can be found on their website They are also active on Facebook & Twitter.

Our second partner of the week is Dementia Friendly East Riding.

Would you like to know more about Dementia?

There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to soar to 2 million by 2051.

One person will develop dementia every three minutes.

It effects so many more people though; in particular the loved ones of those diagnosed. If you are not affected by it now, chances are you will soon know  someone who is.

Dementia Friendly East Riding (DFER) is a charitable organisation which aims to raise awareness and understanding of dementia, and provide activities to support people living with dementia.

DFER is pleased to work in partnership with HCST, and is happy to assist any HCST members and organisations with training and advice on how we can all become dementia friendly.
