A FUNDING scheme administered to the town’s community groups by the Barnsley Chronicle has been resurrected after being halted due to the pandemic.
Stronger Together, backed by South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings, offers grants up to £1,000 and is open to any voluntary group working to help others in their community.
Organisations can apply for funding to provide diversionary activities for young people, purchase set-up equipment that will enable groups to provide sessions to vulnerable people advising them on how to stay safer or reduce the opportunity for them to become a victim of crime.
Visit barnsleychronicle.com/stronger-together to apply.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
