COWPEN QUAY COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
We need people to make good work happen and so we have helped the association by funding staffing costs at the Buffalo Community Centre in Blyth Valley.
This means youth clubs can keep young people in the area busy with positive activities. Ethnic minority women have support readily available too, through the centre’s women’s group which helps to integrate them into community life. The centre is also working with Probation Community Payback Officers so individuals can put something back into the community they have taken out of – from painting park benches to clearing up vandalism.
PCC’s Operation Payback Funding
We need to be doing all we can to prevent people getting into crime.
The aim of the centre is to educate people in different ways to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour. This, in turn, helps local people, young and old, to feel safe and improves their quality of life.
