AN INNOVATIVE project in East Yorkshire working with individuals who commit domestic abuse in a bid to change their behaviour, has secured nearly £1 million pounds of funding, Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison has announced. The funding, which will be used to deliver the initiative across Hull and the East Riding, has been committed for two years.

The money will be used to deliver a new specialist workforce, enhanced support for survivors and a 24-week intervention programme designed to bring about a change in behaviour from perpetrators. Mr Evison said: “It will go a long way to reducing and preventing abuse, ensuring people feel safe in their homes and communities whilst protecting vulnerable people. This will include tackling violence against women and girls and the harm caused by drugs and substance misuse, which is a top priority for us.”


THE ARCHBISHOP of York will ordain 10 new Deacons to serve across the diocese, including Charlie Shefford (pictured above), who will serve as Assistant Curate at Beverley Minster and All Saints Church, Routh. The service of ordination will take place in York Minster on Saturday July 1.
