AIM North East has secured £13,000 worth of funding from the housing association for a programme to tackle issues of anti-social behaviour in Hadston and surrounding areas.

Those involved with the not-for-profit organisation recognised drug abuse and bad behaviour in public as being national problems, but wanted to ensure that they had a tailored approach to suit the needs of these local communities.

Candice Randall, AIM North East director, said: “To combat these issues – and help improve the lives of those who live in the area – thanks to the funding we’ve secured, AIM North East will be delivering a wrap-around care package, which will aim to tackle the issues faced by the community here from all angles.”

To kick-start the support and care programme, the organisation hosted a community event at Hadston Community Centre to encourage the building of relationships between members of the community and their local support services.

Those in attendance included representatives from Karbon Homes.
