Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez has announced the community schemes which will benefit from a fund designed to help tackle anti-social behaviour.

They will get grants of between £250 and £2,500.  They are: Creation Fest (Wadebridge); Skill up & be well, Cosgarne Hall (St Austell); Young People Leading Young People (Camborne); St Petrocs Cold Weather Provision (Truro and neighbouring areas); Roaming Breadline (Penzance); The Friday Night Project (Saltash); St Austell BID, body worn cameras;  New Skills Academy, IntoBodmin; Believe (Falmouth.)

A similar amount has been set aside for next year.  More than 50 ideas were put forward and were studied by a panel which chose the ones to get the funds.
