We have an opportunity to put funds back in to certain areas of Greater Manchester using money seized from criminals.
ARIS, which stands for the Asset Recovery Incentivisation Scheme, gives us the opportunity to use money we’ve taken from criminals (or that they have had to pay back once they’ve been convicted of doing something illegal) to help communities.
It’s all part of our commitment to working together, listening to our communities and sharing information to tackle the issues that matter most to you.
Tackling antisocial behaviour
We are absolutely committed to tackling antisocial behaviour across Greater Manchester, and we’ve listened when you’ve told us that it’s something you care about too.
Our scheme “Giving Back” is an opportunity for people like you to help us give the money to the individuals, organisations and groups that can help tackle antisocial behaviour in your community.
Do you have an idea for a great project that could help tackle youth antisocial behaviour in Hyde, Werneth Central, Hyde Godley, Newton Hattersley & Hollinworth in Tameside? Are you already part of a group that aims to tackle the issue but you need more funding to continue or develop your work? We have funding available - you can bid for between £500 and £2000.
We need to hear your ideas for innovative projects that, if given funding, could help tackle antisocial behaviour and make the area you live in the best place it can be.
