Funding to cut crime on the East Marsh
The North East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership is offering funding to community groups on the East Marsh to boost safety.
The scheme is offering grants of up to £7,500 to voluntary, community and not-for-profit organisations to help cut crime.
The fund is worth some £50,000 in total, with priority projects expected to design out crime, reduce or prevent acquisitive crime and anti-social behaviour, or make environmental improvements to reduce the fear and accessibility of crime.
Councillor Ron Shepherd, portfolio holder for safer and stronger communities at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “Round one of the East Marsh Community Safety Wallet is now open for applications and I’m really keen to encourage as many voluntary groups, organisations and community groups to apply for this funding.
“The fund is aimed at reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in the East Marsh, and it’s important that residents really get involved in planning and shaping projects to have the biggest impact.
“The Community Safety Partnership really wants to work with groups to help them to achieve these aims.”
This scheme has been funded via the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside (PCC) and is being managed by Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire (VANEL) on behalf of the North East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership.
