COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR AGE –
KIDS Yorkshire have been supporting disabled children, young people and their families in Hull since 1988. They work with disabled children from birth up until the age of 25, allowing them to provide continuity of support as children become young adults. They currently work with over 1000 families a year across Hull and East Riding and support all disabilities and conditions. They make a very real difference to the lives of families with a disabled child through high quality, practical and tailored services delivered by dedicated professional staff. One of their most prominent initiatives is Loud Mouths, a lottery funded project that first began January 2018. Meeting around every 2 weeks, Loud Mouths are a group of young people aged 14-25 with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). Their aim is to have a voice, form new friendships, and shape and influence service delivery in the City.
