COMMUNITY projects which work alongside the police to cut down on bad behaviour and crime can get a cash boost.
The West Yorkshire Police Community Trust is offering small grants of up to £250 to encourage community groups and small charities to work with their Neighbourhood Policing Teams.
The money is given to groups that work with young people to reduce anti-social behaviour and criminal damage.
Trust administrator Sarah Flynn said: "The purpose of the small grants is to help groups to work with their local Neighbourhood Policing Team.
"In every community there are police constables and police community support officers who work closely with the community.
"The applications need to be supported by these officers."
Application packs are available from West Yorkshire Community Trust at PO Box 9, Laburnum Road, Wakefield, WF1 3QP or on 01924 292230.
It is also possible to download one from the Community Trust section on West Yorkshire Police's website at www.westyorkshire.police.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Groups which do not know who their local police contact is can send their applications direct to the Trust and they will be sent to the relevant person for endorsement.
The deadline is Friday, February 10.
