Area teams

Working in partnership in the areas

In each of the seven area partnerships, the area teams work with -

  • Humberside Police
  • Humberside Fire and Rescue
  • local businesses
  • local schools
  • local community and residents groups
  • community wardens
  • NHS Hull
  • youth development service

The partnership identifies local priorities to make sure your needs as a resident are met.  Partnership working helps to address complex issues that cannot be tackled effectively by individual organisations working alone.

Working in partnership means we can improve the quality of life in neighbourhoods, particularly through better learning, health, earning opportunities and safer communities.


Case studies

Wyke area

In the Wyke area, we worked on the Sculcoates Green Spaces Project with the Sculcoates Neighbourhood Association, Hull Friends of the Earth, the Wildlife Trust and members of the local community. We secured funding of over £100,000 from various organisations to transform the green spaces in the area. The funding enabled the project partners to renovate the community park, Sculcoates cemetery and Barmston Drain, a local wildlife haven.

The funding has also paid for professional sports coaches to run sessions in the newly renovated park. The twice weekly sessions started in September and have been well attended by local young people.

As a result of the work carried out by the partnership, the green spaces have become well used and maintained parts of Sculcoates that local people have pride in, and incidents of anti-social behaviour, particularly in the park, are now few.

Riverside area

In the Riverside area, we set up the Riverside Community Justice Court to tackle low-level crime and anti-social behaviour in the Drypool, Myton, Newington and St Andrew’s wards.  Held at Hull Magistrates Court, the court sits every Wednesday to hear adult cases and every Friday for young people. It can tailor punishments to deal with particular problems in the area, such as ordering offenders to remove graffiti.

The court works with the Community Justice Forums and the process brings together magistrates and residents, police officers, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Probation Service, youth offending teams and Victim Support. The project has helped to reduce crime in the area and encourage offenders to think how their behaviour affects their local community.

North Carr area

In North Carr, innovative projects are helping to co-ordinate a local response to the citywide issue of poor school attendance.

At Highlands Primary School, staff are working in partnership with us, elected members, police, community wardens and anti-social behaviour teams to reduce poor school attendance by -

  • identifying those parents who need help to improve their children’s attendance at school
  • visiting parents at home
  • promoting positive behaviour
  • linking with local sports clubs, including Hull City AFC

Players from Hull City AFC visited the school to promote positive school attendance, healthy living and eating. The project was so successful it was featured on the BBC Match of the Day programme. Building on the success of the partnership, a conference was held in area around the theme of education and school attendance.

This local community partnership approach to a nationwide problem has resulted in a significant increase in attendance at the school.
