Sefton gives £50,000 to help community groups in Southport and Crosby

Sefton Council has announced the latest projects to be approved as part of the Community Transition Fund.

The fund was established to assist community organisations in developing Sefton’s communities.

In order to qualify for capital from the £1,000,000 pot, any schemes must be linked to the council’s priorities, in particular the support of Sefton’s most vulnerable residents.

The latest projects to be approved are:

£25,000 for Birkdale Community Hub to help towards the cost of refurbishment works.

£25,000 for the Northern Club, Crosby to erect a security fence around an astroturf pitch.

Cllr. Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “Sefton’s Community Transition Fund is a fantastic way for community organisations across our borough to access much needed funds to help kick start their work.

“Community organisations, volunteers and other groups are vital in creating resilient communities and it is important we do everything we can to help them.

“I am delighted that we have been able to support this latest group of projects and organisations.”
