Youth projects important role in reducing crime

WAY visitI was delighted that our Police Commissioner, Sir Graham Bright visited the Waterbeach and Landbeach Action for Youth (WAY) project yesterday. Pictured also with Shelagh Robertson, Chairwomen of WAY Trustees.

The project is a great example of how youth projects can reduce crime. The local Police have on numerous occasions credited WAY with the work that they do. For example last winter some empty houses were broken into as a meeting point, the Lead Youth Worker identified those responsible and action was taken against those involved.

It was clear from the meeting, that our Police Commissioner is very active in supporting youth projects and recognises the important work that they do for the good of the local area.

Personally I have organised three charity events for WAY which raised, in total, over £2,000. I will continue to work hard to support this great local project.
