Over 170k invested across Lancashire to tackle reoffending as total approaches half a million

Alert message sent 16/08/2019 14:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Police & Crime Commissioner

Tackling crime and reoffending is a key priority for me as Police and Crime Commissioner and for Lancashire Constabulary and I wanted to let you know about the most recent funding that I have provided to support projects which work with offenders to ensure they do not return to a life of crime.

My Reducing Reoffending Fund has provided over £170,000 to help projects up and down the county tackle reoffending and, ultimately, make our communities safer.

This investment builds on the work that has been going on across Lancashire since I launched the Fund in 2018 and means the total invested is approaching half a million pounds.

I have visited a number of the projects that have run and are currently running with support from the Reducing Reoffending Fund and time and again, I hear the stories about how people who have been in the criminal justice system are turning their lives around and no longer carrying out criminal behaviour in our neighbourhoods.

Reoffending is not an issue that policing can tackle alone, working in partnership with organisations like those who are delivering these projects is an absolutely crucial part of the work going on in Lancashire to make our streets safer.

You can find out more about the Reducing Reoffending Fund and how grant funding through my office helps deliver my Police and Crime Plan priorities, on my website at lancashire-pcc.gov.uk

Yours sincerely,

Clive Grunshaw
