Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw is calling for community groups to gain extra funding through his Community Action Fund.


Mr Grunshaw wants to invest in neighbourhoods by helping local organisations which help their communities to reach key milestones.

The Community Action Fund launched in 2013 and has seen over £500,000 invested into projects across Lancashire, helping groups tackle local concerns and deliver the Commissioner’s key priorities.

Clive Grunshaw, said: “It’s striking that since the Community Action Fund launched, over half a million pounds has been provided to local groups who are making our country a better place to live, work and visit. They deliver great value for money for relatively small investment, help me achieve the priorities in my Police and Crime Plan and ultimately, make the country safer.

“The fund recognises that the people who live and breathe the work they do in our communities have great ideas. I’m keen for as many as possible to apply and continue applying and continue to encourage them to visit my website, look at the criteria and get in touch if you need more information.”
