Welcome to the Hessle Town Council website.
This site has been developed to give the residents access to their Council.

East Riding Health and Wellbeing Survey
East Riding Council and Hessle Town Council want to hear from you!
If you are an East Riding resident and over the age of 18, please take part in East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Health and Wellbeing survey: https://eryc.link/healthsurvey2023
The anonymous survey will help East Riding Council and local health partners including the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB), Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust and Healthwatch East Riding develop public health and care services to support people in the East Riding to improve their health and wellbeing.
Every opinion is valuable and will help support residents.
The survey is anonymous and only takes about 10 minutes to complete, with questions on a range of subjects including cost of living, mental health, sleep, community, physical activity, COVID-19, smoking and alcohol use.
Carers can also complete the survey on behalf of people they are caring for.
The survey is running for 12 weeks, and the results will be shared later in the year.
Paper versions are also available on request, as are versions in braille and in different languages, by calling the ERYC council’s customer services team: (01482) 393939 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

East Riding of Yorkshire Council - Help and support for households across the East Riding with the cost of living
To support residents with the cost of living, East Riding Council have launched a ‘Help for Households’ campaign. This campaign will ensure that residents are aware of the support, advice and help available to them from the government, from local partners and ERYC’s own council services.
Information about support, advice and help together with sign-posting is currently arranged under seven headings to enable residents to find relevant information as easily as possible. The dedicated one-stop website is now available to view by clicking on the link:
This information spans current available provision from the government, partners and ERYC’s own services. New additional provisions and routes of access are being added as soon as they become available to residents.
Residents without access to the internet and in need of help can contact the council by telephoning: (01482) 393939.
For businesses, a summary of help, advice and support is also now available by clicking the following link: https://www.eastriding.gov.uk/business/cost-of-living-help-for-businesses/
Welcoming places are being established across the East Riding to provide somewhere warm for residents to visit during the colder months.
Community groups will be able to apply for grants to open their venues as welcoming spaces while East Riding libraries will be opening their doors to people to offer a warm and welcoming place.
As part of the Do it for East Yorkshire community grant, organisations and community groups, including those who have previously received funding from the scheme, can now apply for grants between £1,500 and £5,000 specifically for opening their venues on a regular basis to provide welcoming places.
