Community groups across the Northumbria force area have been awarded a combined total of more than £80,000 in funding.

The financial boost has come from the Commissioner’s Community Fund.

This year, more than 68 charities, voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises that run projects which support the key priorities of Vera Baird’s Police and Crime Plan have been successful in their applications.

Initiatives can receive up to £2,000 and each one that receives support helps to tackle anti-social behaviour, promote crime prevention and/or build community confidence.
