NEW SURVEYS have been launched to gather views on domestic abuse services in East Yorkshire. Accessed via East Riding Council’s website, responses will help create a new Domestic Abuse Partnership Strategy for 2023 -2026, which will set out how different organisations, such as the police, local authorities, health services, prison and probation services, and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, can work together to help people affected by domestic abuse.

Angela Dearing, the council’s director of housing, transportation and public protection, said: “We are working hard to understand how we can better support victims and raise awareness about domestic abuse in the county. We want to hear your opinions on what we are doing well and how we can improve,” she said. More details here 

A £500,000 investment by Beverley’s East Riding College in manufacturing and engineering machinery to upskill local workforces has been welcomed by some of the region’s largest firms. The college has purchased four pieces of specialist equipment that will help businesses train their employees in the latest production technology, boosting both workers’ skills and business efficiency. 

The new machinery was demonstrated to representatives from companies including JR Rix and Sons, Atlas Leisure Homes and Cranswick plc at a recent breakfast event, when the college also launched its offer of bespoke courses tailored to the needs of individual companies, whether they are seeking to train apprentices or upskill more experienced workers.
