01 July 2016
At its June meeting the Derry and Strabane PCSP agreed to allocate over £220,000 to local projects from across the city and district. A total of twenty eight projects will receive funding under the small project support scheme with a further six projects securing support under the engagement scheme.
Speaking about the awards Councillor Eric McGinley, outgoing Chair of the PCSP said, “These awards are excellent news for our community partners who work tirelessly to deliver safer communities for all our residents. I am delighted that our PCSP has been able to contribute significant financial support to local groups and partnerships that will deliver local solutions to local issues. Awards have been made to groups working right across the council district to tackle anti-social/community behaviour, reduce fear of crime, tackle domestic and sexual violence, increase youth engagement and support the delivery of drugs and alcohol initiatives. Some of the organisations that will be supported through these awards include, Nexus, HURT, Dennett Interchange, Foyle Women’s Aid, Mourne Search and Rescue, Off the Streets, Clooney Resident’s Association, Glen Development Initiative and Ballymagroarty Hazelbank Community Association. The level of support that has been allocated by the PCSP this year underlines our commitment to working with all our partners to deliver safer, shared and more confident communities for all.”
