Force recognised for its work with young people in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire Police has won an award for its part in helping support children during the school holidays. Nottinghamshire Police worked closely with Nottingham City Council who part funded the work through its Holiday Activity Fund (HAF). Trent Bridge Community Trust and other partners helped to organise the events.

The HAF programme began in 2018 when the Department for Education started to invest in local projects to deliver free holiday clubs and food to children during school holidays, including Nottingham. The force helped organise four-days of events celebrating Black culture last October that provided just a snapshot of the wider activity taking place as part of Black History Month. Police, partners and various organisations supporting local communities in Nottingham all came together for the events, which celebrated the different aspects of Black culture.

The award, was presented at the House of Commons last month.
