Winner of the Transforming Services Category at the Service Improvement Day Awards 2010

Social care and housing staff had success at last week’s Service Improvement Day (SID) Awards 2010. The prestigious SID awards recognise the best examples of service improvement. Hull’s ‘Living Life to the Full’ entry won the Transforming Services category for the introduction of person-led assessments, offering personal budgets to people who are eligible for social care services.

The awards took place at a full day open event at the KC Stadium, where NHS organisations and local councils in the Hull and East Riding area were publicising the good work that they do.


Winner of the BBC Power of Sport Award for East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire 2009

Before the Aiming High inclusive cycle scheme was launched some young people may never have been on a bike.

The Aiming High scheme offers specially adapted cycles for people with disabilities. Pupils from Frederick Holmes Special School played a part in identifying the need for a scheme like this. The pupils also helped to choose East Park as an ideal location for the scheme.

A whole range of cycles including tandems, hand cycles and tricycles are available. The scheme offers a fun day out for children and families, and could soon be expanded to allow even more young cyclists the chance to take part.

The project is run by KIDS on behalf of Hull City Council.

Winner of the UDiTE Award in the social wellbeing category 2009

The Humberside young witness service received international recognition as winners in the European UDiTE Awards, which recognise innovative local government projects that have resulted in real and sustainable improvements.

The service offers support to all young witnesses in the Humber region, in order to reduce the trauma of going to court and enable them to give the best evidence possible.
