A charitable organisation providing support to vulnerable adults in Hull will soon enjoy new and improved office space thanks to Levelling Up Funding.

MRC Estates and Letting Agents Limited and its not-for-profit sister of company, CU Support, has been granted £54,402.98 for the restoration to the ground floor of 2-4 Baker Street.

Full planning permission has already been approved for three new windows and the installation of roof mounted solar panels and, on completion, the project will create seven full-time equivalent jobs.

The funding, from monies awarded to Hull City Council in 2021 by the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, will be match funded by MRC, meaning the overall cost of the project is £108,805.95.

The building will undergo a full refurbishment, with works including a full strip out of the floor space, as well as new doors and frames, air conditioning and ventilation. There will also be new flooring and decorations.

Cllr Paul Drake-Davis, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “Levelling Up Funding has provided so many opportunities to regenerate the city centre and this is another example.

“It is great that the council is able to support both a local business and a non-profit organisation at the same time.”
