Still time to apply for Commissioner’s reducing reoffending funding

Reducing Reoffending

The £200k fund is part of his key priority to tackle crime and reoffending in the county and support those who have offended to not do so again.

Four local Reducing Reoffending Boards, which cover the North, East, South and West of the county, will play a key role in helping the Commissioner fund projects, making sure successful bids address local issues and priorities within individual communities.

Earlier this year, Jerry Graham, formerly a senior officer at Lancashire Constabulary and most recently Chief Constable in Cumbria, was appointed as Independent Chair of these boards, which include representatives from partners including Lancashire Constabulary, local authorities and the regional CRC.

Clive Grunshaw, Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner said:

“Policing alone cannot prevent people reoffending and working in partnership with organisations across the county and building on the work already being done is crucial in meeting my priority to tackle crime and reoffending in Lancashire.

“I know from seeing programmes that have received funding in the past the real difference they can make in people’s lives and the local boards will play a key role in identifying local concerns and making sure that projects which receive funding can make a real difference and turn people’s lives around.”

The Commissioner’s reducing reoffending funding is currently open for applications, with the current application window open until 17:00 on 02 July 2018.
