A COMMUNITY Action Fund has been launched to help organisations and that projects may need to be delivered differently during the coronavirus pandemic.
It comes as 26 projects in Lancashire have been successful in gaining grants, with over £60,000 going towards community organisations who are helping make the county a safer and better place.
It has been created by Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner, Clive Grunshaw.
With the funding reopening for applications, the Commissioner is keen to hear from groups who may be able to deliver schemes in innovative ways, mindful of the impact that COVID 19 has had, with social distancing likely to still be in place in some form for the foreseeable future. Applications will need to reference expected outcomes of projects and how these will be measured.
Mr Grunshaw said: “The last few months have seen life here in Lancashire change, almost beyond recognition, for many people. We know that the work that my Community Action Fund supports, helping deliver my ‘Police and Crime Plan’ priorities, is still something that is needed across the county.
“As my fund relaunches, I would like to call on all those groups that support our neighbourhoods and help build more confident, vibrant communities, to apply for support to help deliver those projects that are often the glue that brings people together and keep people safe.”
