A youth group has been boosted by a £3,000 grant.
Fun Club in Lichfield and Burntwood were awarded the money from Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner’s People Power Fund to create the VIP Lounge sessions.
Aimed at 12 to 16 year olds, the youth club offers activities such as graffiti art workshops, sport and computer gaming.
Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis said: “The best ideas to reduce crime, social harm and anti-social behaviour often come from communities affected by those issues.
“Fun Club are doing a fantastic job of providing youngsters in Burntwood with a safe environment to keep them entertained and out of mischief.”
Fun Club co-Founder, Kelly McCabe-Crowley, said the grant had allowed members to enjoy additional activities.
She explained: “We run sessions where young people can be in a safe place with their friends learn new skills and mostly have fun. Thanks to the funding we are able to provide activities that they want, including graffiti sessions.”
