A TILBURY company has been awarded a lottery grant to help get kids off the streets in the town.
Manna Nourishment Limited has been awarded Â£9,886 by the Lottery Fund.
The details of the project are as follows:
"The organisation will use the funding to establish a youth service with mentoring and a positive environment with opportunities to develop new skills, engage in positive social activities, and stay off the streets.
"This will enable the group to provide diversionary activities and support to young people at risk of gang involvement or antisocial behaviour to encourage a more positive mindset, improved community cohesion, and social engagement".
YT will be catching up with the company to find out how the scheme is coming along.
