A £2.3m spending plan to help to cut crime, protect vulnerable people and support victims has been revealed by Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw.

The money will be spread out over the next 12 months and goes towards helping a project which is also looking to reduce youth offending and substance misuse.

The funding includes £325,000 to be split between every district in Lancashire, to spend on local projects that support the commissioner’s priorities.

Mr Grunshaw said: “This money will support police in the fight against crime and some of Lancashire’s most vulnerable people.

“Providing funding for initiatives right across Lancashire is one of the ways I am keeping Lancashire safe and delivering on my priorities. That is why I fought against Government cuts that would have dramatically reduced the amount we can spend on these services and I am delighted to be able to keep funding at the same level as last year.”
