The money will be spread out over the next 12 months and goes towards helping a project which is also looking to reduce youth offending and substance misuse.

The funding includes £325,000 to be split between every district in Lancashire, to spend on local projects that support the commissioner’s priorities.

Mr Grunshaw said: “This money will support police in the fight against crime and some of Lancashire’s most vulnerable people.

“Providing funding for initiatives right across Lancashire is one of the ways I am keeping Lancashire safe and delivering on my priorities. That is why I fought against Government cuts that would have dramatically reduced the amount we can spend on these services and I am delighted to be able to keep funding at the same level as last year.”
