Four organisations are set to benefit from a share of £57,000 to help reduce crime, improve the lives of young people and assist the emergency services in Suffolk.
Grants worth up to £20,000 have been awarded by Suffolk’s police and crime commissioner (PCC).
Announcing the four successful recipients of the latest wave of his PCC fund grants, Tim Passmore praised the work of Ormiston Families, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue, The Mix and the YMCA.
The £57,000 will fund various projects which contribute to reducing crime and disorder, or help victims or witnesses.
Ormiston Families has received £15,325 to support children with a parent or carer in prison.
Funding will be ringfenced for Suffolk and will support 35 children to improve their emotional wellbeing and resilience through the Breaking Barriers service.
