A new grant aimed at improving community safety and crime reduction is available to local groups in South Tyneside.
The Safer Communities Grant is a joint initiative between South Tyneside Council's Community Safety and Regeneration Teams. Local groups can apply for grants of up to £2,000 to develop projects aimed at reducing crime, and increasing community safety in their area.
Any community and voluntary group requiring funding for a project aimed at fighting crime, combating the fear of crime or helping victims of crime can apply for a grant.
For more information or an application pack, contact the Regeneration Team on 424 7595 before 18th July.
The scheme is supported by One NorthEast, South Tyneside Crime and Disorder Partnership and South Tyneside Council Community Safety Section.
