PCSP Chairperson Councillor Darryl Wilson explains: “As part of the PCSP Action Plan for 2021-22, the Partnership has identified a gap in services for those aged 18 and over, who are not eligible for Probation Board or Youth Justice Agency funding.

“This intervention project is aimed at individuals who are on the cusp of, or already at, the attention of Police, and will provide grants of up to £500 to help steer them in another direction.

“The grants can be used for a variety of measures including training courses or gym membership and AIMS can work with the individual on any other suitable interventions.”

For further information about this project please contact AIMS by emailing [email protected] or ring Leanne on 07747077945.

The AIMS project stands for Advocacy, Inclusion, Mitigation from Violence, Support.
