Announcing the Project Support Programme, Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP Chairman, Councillor Alan Givan said: “I would encourage all relevant groups to make an application to access this funding which is being made available to address policing and community safety issues across the council area.

"The Partnership wishes to reach out to all communities to make their communities safer and to improve confidence in policing, however it is particularly keen to receive applications from groups who have traditionally not engaged in this area of work.”
