A Cranbrook organisation which provides youth services to the town had been awarded £2,447 from the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Small Grant Scheme.

Youth Genesis, which runs the Tuesday evening youth club on behalf of Cranbrook Town Council (CTC), will now be able to extend its work to cover streetbase sessions on Wednesday evenings during term time.

Youth Genesis was one of 27 organisations to receive a grant from the scheme, which aims to tackle anti-social behaviour.

CTC supported the Youth Genesis project which will see youth workers and volunteers engaging young people in positive activities and citizenship opportunities.

Cllr Kim Bloxham said, “This is great news for the town. Our Youth Workers do a fantastic job in engaging the young people in Cranbrook and this award allows us to extend the service to another evening.”
