Humber Learning Consortium – Building Better Opportunities

The Building Better Opportunities (BBO) project is delivered in the Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire areas as part of the national Building Better Opportunities project. This project is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and North East Lincolnshire Mind are working in partnership with Humber Learning Consortium (HLC) to deliver counselling services for the BBO project. We aim to offer counselling support to people who are unemployed, experiencing difficulties relating to health, social exclusion and financial issues. This will enable participants to move closer towards job-search, training, education and employment.

We can provide BBO participants access to one-to-one sessions with the same counsellor. Each session will last approximately 60 minutes and will take place either online or at various locations in the Beverley, Bridlington, Hull, Grimsby and Scunthorpe areas. For further information, or to discuss a referral, please contact your BBO Key Worker.

Dealing with bereavement

If you have experienced bereavement within the last year and are struggling to manage or come to terms with the loss, then our specialist wellbeing workers can help you by providing a listening ear and one to one emotional support.

We can provide you with support in your own home or somewhere that is convenient for you*. Typically, our support for bereavement lasts for six months, but we will also help you to access other support if you need more help.

Our specialist mental health support is designed around what you need. Support may include:

  • Emotional support and reassurance using theories and models of bereavement
  • Practical support – signposting, help with arrangements, accompanying to appointments
  • Creative emotional support, for example memory boxes and craft ideas
  • Therapeutic support – resources and advice around stress control and anxiety management, either individually or in a group setting.
