Launched in July 2018 Got Your Back is the place to go for trusted media on the topics that matter! We are using social media for social good and help you understand rights and issues facing young people in Hull.
Whatever the topic, Got Your Back is here for you. We aim to show life how it really is, warts and all! We create videos, blogs and post that start the conversations and debates, that enables you to protect and support yourself and each other through well-informed, powerful and relatable content.
Got Your Back is run by an Editorial Board of young volunteers aged between 13 and 19 who live, work or study in Hull. New Board members are welcome!
Got Your Back has been created following lots of research with local people who have shaped what we’ll do, how we’ll do it and even came up with the name as a way of showing each other that when it comes to life’s challenges there is somewhere there for you and on your side.
The work to build and run Got Your Back is supported by NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning on behalf of the Hull Place-based Board. Social marketing company eskimosoup is working with young people to make it happen.
