PREVENTING CRIME AND SUPPORTING A SAFER YUROKE

The Hume community will benefit from $9347 in safety improvements to facilities as part of the latest round of Community Safety Fund (CSF) grants, funded by the Andrews Labor Government. Member for Yuroke Ros Spence welcomed $9347 in funding for the Safe as Houses: Community Connections initiative run by Attwood House Community Centre. The funding will assist Attwood House Community Centre to deliver safety and crime prevention information sessions throughout the City of Hume in partnership with other local community organisations to improve crime prevention awareness. The Labor Government has announced $636,000 for 100 projects across the state through the 2018-19 round of Community Safety Fund grants. The grants provide up to $10,000 in funding to local councils and not-for-profit groups, for projects across Victoria to help to prevent crime and support people to feel safer and more engaged in their communities. The CSF grants are part of the Labor Government’s $25 million investment in its Community Crime Prevention Program to improve community safety and prevent crime. This builds on the $19.4 million invested in the program in 2016-17. The Labor Government saved these grants after the Liberals cut their funding - the Government has a track-record in investing in crime prevention projects that are supported by the community and Victoria Police. Since July 2015, the Labor Government has delivered more than 650 crime prevention projects and provided more than $2.3 million in Community Safety Fund grants to help support local crime prevention projects across Victoria.
