“We started the project on a budget of £1,500 so the PCC’s support is very good news. Anything which supports local businesses and local clubs and helps young people stay out of trouble is a very worthwhile investment”
“Whenever there was anything wrong I knew that there was always someone at the Door I could talk to and get support. Now, thanks to the Police Commissioner I have a job there which means I can put something back by using my story to help others. It’s like a big family.”
