Local Community Groups awarded funding by Cheshire police and crime commissioner
The Community Police Fund links directly to the recently launched initiative to increase police visibility in every community in Cheshire by providing a dedicated Police Constable (PC) and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) for all 122 policing communities.

The fund has been developed using money seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act (PoCA) 2002 to send a clear message to criminals that crime doesn’t pay.
This time the funding will be used to deliver projects within the Grange and Little Neston/Burton areas.

Gold Star Boxing Club will be using their funding towards equipment to enable to continue providing an outlet to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all of their users.

Retain Wellbeing run the ‘Gift Café, attached to Chapel House and Plessington Court.  The PCC Funding will be used for the purchase of a marquee, flooring and outdoor heating to enable socially distanced activities to take place for their dementia patients.
PCC David Keane said: “By taking out the profits that fund crime and reinvesting them into community, we can help prevent further offences and increase community safety.
“This fund is empowering our local communities to work directly with our 122 community PCs and PCSOs on tailored projects which make a real difference to your local area.
“I look forward to seeing the difference this project will make in preventing crime and anti-social behaviour.”
