Work to prevent crime and disorder will be boosted by the West Yorkshire Police Community Trust.

The Community Trust has funds of up to 2,500 up for grabs in its latest grants round and gives local community/voluntary groups the chance to apply for funding to support their valuable work in addressing the issues identified by local communities.

A total of 50,000 worth of funding has been allocated to this grant round and applications are sought from community and volunteer groups as well as charities and other non-profitable organisations that can make a positive difference to their communities.

The Community Trust has distributed almost 800,000 to worthwhile projects since it was established in 1996. The Community Trust is funded by seizing assets from criminals under the Proceeds of Crime Act and also through fundraising and private donations.

Last year's grant recipients included;

Bradford Dragons Basketball Club ? that were granted 1,440 to help deliver outdoor basketball taster sessions in parks and outdoor courts around the Bingley area. It?s aim was to try and attract more young people away from anti-social behaviour by becoming involved in a new sport. Fest received 1,240 worth of funding to provide diversionary activities for young people from all over Huddersfield. They have been given cookery lessons from a local celebrity chef, a photography workshop from a local, professional photographer and were able to film with
a successful film-maker from Huddersfield.

Greenside Community Centre ? were given 390 to provide residents with a safe and fun environment. Many of its residents are over 80 and benefited from increased security and entertainment over the Christmas period.

Bob Lewis, Trustee of the West Yorkshire Police Community Trust, said: We're encouraging groups from across West Yorkshire to apply for a grant from the Community Trust. We have seen some great work and projects from previous applicants and we're sure this will continue this year. The Trust remains committed to funding these grants at a local level because of the valuable benefits that are achieved.  It has supported hundreds of local community groups and small charities
across West Yorkshire over the years, helping them to make a real difference to the lives of others.
