Tackling organised crime EVOLVE.jpgOrganisations have been given thousands of pounds in funding to help crackdown on serious and organised crime in parts of Liverpool and Knowsley.

Zoran Blackie, Senior Programme Manager for the Trust, who compered the event, said: “It was my privilege to share the excitement of all the great projects pitching to their peers at the Live Now event.

"While the funding will help local groups to make a difference in the short term, the relationships and connections made on the day will support community action for this area into the future.

“Even those who may not have got their projects funded are invited to work together with all the successful groups to share resources, collaborate on bids and open up opportunities, especially for some who have felt forgotten. These passionate people deserve all the support in building communities.”
