Police and Crime Commissioner's grants scheme for Worcestershire communities

WEST Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner has launched a dedicated fund to ensure support groups at the heart of the community have the resources they need during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

The fund has been established to allow Town and Parish Councils across West Mercia to apply for money to purchase essential items that will allow them to continue providing support to those that need it most.

With communities across West Mercia staying at home and following Government guidance, PCC John Campion is also encouraging residents to volunteer in their community.

He said: “This new fund will give volunteer groups the opportunity to fund essential items such as face masks, gloves and ID badges, enabling them to continue the vital work they are doing in our communities.”
