Partnership grants help increase support for nights out
Night time support at weekends has increased in the town centre thanks to the help of Northampton Borough Council’s Partnership Grants.
Northampton Street Pastors is a group of volunteers from local churches who work alongside Northampton Borough Council and Northamptonshire Police. They provide care and support in the town centre during the Friday and Saturday evenings, and during national celebrations such as Christmas, New Year and Bank Holidays.
Over the past three years, Northampton Street Pastors have successfully applied for the Partnership Grants, securing more than £22,000 to help fund the employment of Street Pastor Coordinators and an administrator for a few hours a month.
