Barrow AFC Community Initiative has received £10,000 from the Cumbria police and crime commissioner fund
Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Richard Rhodes has awarded more than £45,000 from the PCC Community Fund.
Last year, he set aside £100,000 a year over the next four years as part of his commitment to communities.
Charities, voluntary groups and community groups applied for up to £10,000 to help fund projects which try to reduce crime and tackle anti-social behaviour.
Mr Rhodes said: “I am delighted to be able to announce the details of those groups who have made a successful application to the Community Fund.
“The Judging Panel and I were impressed with the overall quality and diversity of schemes that we were being asked to support.
“All of the applications were for projects which individually tackled key areas within the Police and Crime plan. “Unfortunately, we had only a finite amount of money to be able to support these initiatives and had some difficult decisions to make as to which projects we would commission.”
Awards have been made as follows:
Cumbria Gateway £10,000
Heathlands Project £1,500
Cumbria Crimestoppers £5,000
Barrow AFC Community Initiative £10,000
Cumbria Reducing Reoffending P’ship Trust £10,000
Furness Multicultural Community Forum £6,000
Our Place Youth Project £3,000
