Days of action in Wellingborough, reducing the impact of alcohol-related violence in Corby and slowing the traffic to meet a local priority in Moulton are among the latest community projects that have received a funding boost thanks to grants awarded by Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold.
Grants to the value of £40,000 have been awarded to nine groups, all working in different ways to make their community safer.
These latest awards mean that the more than £120,000 has been given to good causes around the county this year and a total of almost £250,000 since 2017, when the Northamptonshire Safer Communities Fund was set up to support voluntary and community groups, charities and other voluntary organisations with projects promoting the aims of the Police and Crime Plan.
This year, the Commissioner has also made the Northamptonshire Road Safety Community Fund available to give grants of between £500 and £5,000 for initiatives that support the Strategic Road Safety Plan and aim to reduce behaviour such as speeding and anti-social road use.
This money given as grants comes from a number of sources including fines from speed enforcement where offenders pay to attend a speed awareness workshop, and money taken from criminals through the Proceeds of Crime Act.
The latest awards support organisations working in small communities or right across Northamptonshire.

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold said: “Since I became Commissioner, it has been my absolute pleasure to be able to give almost £250,000 to people who are carrying out fantastic work and are dedicated to making their communities safer. I’m really looking forward to visiting these areas to see the improvements that these exciting projects have delivered.”
Julia Feazey, Chief Executive of Wellingborough-based Family Support Link said: “This money will enable us to support more children across Northamptonshire impacted by another’s substance use, promoting their aspirations and self-esteem.”
