Howard League Community Awards for successful projects that cut crime

SUCCESSFUL community projects that reduce crime and transform lives for the better have been honoured with prestigious national awards.

Projects from Avon and Somerset, Berkshire, Cheshire, Devon and Cornwall, Dorset, East Yorkshire, Gloucestershire, London, Merseyside, South Yorkshire and the West Midlands were among the commended entries. Rose Mahon, of the Nelson Trust, which runs women's centres in Gloucester and Swindon, was named Criminal Justice Champion. The Organisation of the Year category was won by 2 projects - 41 Goodison Road, a scheme run by Everton Football Club; and Giroscope, a charity based in Hull. Catryn Yousefi, Programmes Manager at the Howard League for Penal Reform, said:- "Our Community Awards celebrate the success of projects that guide people away from crime and make us all safer.
