Scarborough Project Gets Cash Boost
Two programmes in Scarborough which aim to tackle antisocial behaviour and keep young people safe have been given grants.
They're being supported in the latest round of grants to be awarded from Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, Julia Mulligan’s, £250,000 Community Fund.
The first successful bid was from Judo Solutions. The club will use the money to fund a new project designed engage with ‘hard to reach’ young people and also to help rehabilitate young offenders.
Off-road motorcycle club, Mud in Your Blood, based at Seamer Road, was also successful in its bid for over £12,000. The money will be used to bring a further 150 young people and their families from into the club to participate in activities.
The two projects deliver on the overall objectives of the Commissioner’s Community fund, which are to support young people and victims of crime, as well as rehabilitate offenders. Local charities, community groups and individuals can bid for any amount between £500 and £20,000.
