PROJECTS that tackle youth offending and domestic abuse are among those sharing a huge £2.3m boost from Hampshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner.

Several organisations across Portsmouth, Havant, Gosport and Fareham will benefit from grants which aim to support victims of crime and prevent re-offending.

Crime Commissioner Simon Hayes said: ‘I am optimistic that a greater focus and investment in partnership-working will “protect people and places” by preventing crime and ensuring the experiences of victims and witnesses are acknowledged and acted upon.’

The Southern Domestic Abuse service has been awarded more than £65,000 for various projects, including a mentoring project for men.

Barnado’s in Portsmouth was awarded £40,000, while Gosport Street Pastors got £4,500. Other beneficiaries include: Aurora New Dawn (£40,000); Music Fusion (£5,000); Motiv8 (£25,000); 2015 Rock Challenge (£25,000); Gosport Community Safety Partnership (£10,500); Safer Portsmouth Partnership (£84,000); Relate Portsmouth (£5,000); Big World Impact (£23,000); and Portsmouth Counselling Service (£8,000).
