AN INNOVATIVE project got a cash boost from the police.

Brighton’s Make (Good) Trouble is a media production company working with teenagers and parents to raise awareness of issues affecting youngsters.

It included broadcasting a radio series called Raising Teens which has been featured on the BBC.

The company was given a £10,000 donation through the Police Property Act Fund.

This funding is from money received by the force from selling on property which has been confiscated by the courts from criminals.

Make (Good) Trouble’s producer Jane Keating said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the funding to continue building on the success of producing the Raising Teens series.

“We want to create an online hub where parents and carers can feel included, supported with easy access to practical help and support to gain a better understanding of teenage emotional and mental health issues.”

The group attended a cheque presentation with Chief Superintendent Jane Derrick at the police force headquarters in Lewes, alongside Sgt Jan Szaranek, Jane Keating, Lola Ray, Daisy and Taylor Cresswell and PC Claire Kilroy.
