Drug and alcohol agency’s grant aid for Keighley group

First published in News

A Keighley group is among 14 across Bradford district to receive cash from the Safer Communities Fund in its first round of grants.

Drug and alcohol agency Project 6 has been awarded £3,152 from money seized from criminals under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

More than £200,000 has been distributed to 45 community groups across West Yorkshire, with £84,000 benefiting Bradford district projects.

Successful applicants were given the cash during a presentation event at Tong High School in Bradford.

West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson said: “As funding cuts continue to impact on charities and voluntary organisations, I am delighted to be able to provide these groups with the money that will allow them to provide an invaluable service to our local communities.”

The second round of grants will open to applications on Monday, and organisations are encouraged to submit bids of up to £7,500. Visit westyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk for further information.
