Call for Community Groups to apply as Commissioner fund reaches half a million milestone

Alert message sent 19/12/2019 15:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Police & Crime Commissioner


Since launching my Community Action Fund in 2013, it has supported local groups across Lancashire, investing in projects that helps local organisations improve their neighbourhoods.

I'm delighted that at the end of 2019 we have hit a major milestone, with £500,000 being invested through the Community Action Fund since its creation 6 years ago.

They make our county a better place to live, work and visit whilst delivering value for money for relatively small investments capped at a maximum of £3,000.

The fund today utilises solely money removed from criminals, allowing us to invest back into the people of Lancashire and do something positive with this money.

From offering diversionary activity which help ensure people do not get involved in criminal activity such as anti-social behaviour, protecting vulnerable people and helping to ensure they don't become victims of crime and generally strengthening communities across Lancashire by bringing people together, there are a wide range of projects which have and continue to be supported by the fund.

It recognises that the people who live and breathe the work they do in our communities have great ideas and I'm keen for as many as possible to apply and continue applying.

I encourage any group who wants to learn more about the criteria and apply to visit the dedicated section on my website and get in touch if you need more information.
