AN enterprising leadership and skills scheme which gives confidence and self-esteem to Halton young people has received a cash boost.

The Prince’s Trust programme, delivered by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, has been awarded £200 from the Commissioner’s Crime Prevention Fund to encourage young people in Halton to help their local community.

Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer said: "It’s fantastic to see young people giving back to their communities, interacting and helping those they otherwise may distance themselves from. I want to wish the project the best of luck.

"This project provides young people with diversionary activities, and will hopefully give them the confidence and new skills. I am really pleased that this project also helps to bridge the generation gap."

The project aims to tackle anti-social behaviour and re-offending in young people in the area, which are two priorities in John Dwyer’s Police & Crime Plan.

Nick Evans, youth engagement manager for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "I would like to thank the Commissioner on behalf of the Halton team for providing this funding.

“The money went a long way to the redecoration and refurbishment of Trinity Church in Halton, which is used by community groups and as a meeting place for young and older persons alike."
