The booklet will help support young entrepreneurs who've been affected by the pandemic
Hull City Council, inspired by Hull born actress and comedian Lucy Beaumont, have produced a Mental Wellbeing handbook to support young entrepreneurs with their mental wellbeing, find focus and nurture their potential.
The project has been done in partnership with Hull Youth Enterprise Ambassadors and Inspire Ignite.
In recent times, young entrepreneurs have faced uncertainty and emerging from that uncertainty with motivation and good mental wellbeing has been hard for many. Those from #ExcludedUK communities that did not receive financial support from HM Treasury during the pandemic have been among the worst affected.
Councillor Paul Drake-Davis Portfolio Holder Regeneration said: "I wish to put on record my thanks to Inspire Ignite and the Council's Youth Enterprise Champions Georgia, James and Sammy for developing this important guide as part of the #FutureYou Campaign.
“As someone who has direct experience of the stresses and strains running a small business can bring, I hope that all those who use this invaluable guide to Mental Wellbeing value its content and realise that there are people always willing to support them if they need it. After all, business owners know more than most about the importance of communication and working together."
Lucy Beaumont, Hull-born Actress and Comedian said: “As a Vice President of John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank, I am delighted to support this extremely important booklet for young people who own businesses in general and in Hull in particular.
“This handbook has been developed to support enterprising young people to raise from the ashes and find focus and nurture their potential. I hope my support for this booklet is one way of making sure I support young entrepreneurs in my home city."
