Organisations in Lichfield and Burntwood don’t have long to apply for funding from the county crime reduction charity Partners Assuring a Safer Staffordshire (PASS).

Groups have until January 31 to apply for the funds to support a project in the area.

PASS co-ordinator Marie Foskett said:

“PASS provides small grants of up to £2,000 to projects that aim to reduce crime in their community.  The trustees are particularly interested in activities that engage young people and combat anti-social behaviour.

“Last year, 44 applications made to PASS received financial support from funds donated by Staffordshire Police from the proceeds of crime and from business members of PASS.”

Further details on projects that have received grants, and application forms, can be found on the PASS website or by ringing PASS on 01785 232361.  Further funding rounds will take place later this year, with details available online.
