Groups can apply for funds


Local DUP MLA Sydney Anderson has encouraged community groups to apply for the latest round of funding available through the Assets Recovery Community Scheme.

Mr Anderson said: “I would like to take this opportunity to encourage local community groups within the Upper Bann constituency to make use of funding that is being offered through the Assets Recovery Community Scheme. The money that is offered through this scheme has been taken out of the possession of criminals and has subsequently been returned to the community.

“Such resources have been used and will continue to be used to help those who want to make a positive contribution to their communities which is good news for all.

“Community groups who wish to apply for funding through the 2016/17 Assets Recovery Community Scheme must submit their application through the local ABC Policing and Community Safety Partnership with the deadline for applications 29 January.

“Groups are encouraged to identify projects which provide good practice solutions to local problems.”
