Acis launches cracking youth project
An innovative diversionary project for local young people is being launched in the run up to bonfire night. The Firecracker initiative is being headed up by Gainsborough based affordable housing provider Acis Group to get young people off the streets and get them involved in fun activities in a safe environment.
Firecracker, now in its fourth year, aims to tackle the issues of increased crime and anti-social behaviour during this period by engaging with youngsters.

Firecracker will be held every Friday for five weeks, from 4 October to 1 November between 7pm and 9pm. Up to 40 youths aged between 11 and 16 can be accommodated during each session, which will be held at the Park Springs Community Centre in Gainsborough.
Lucy Picksley, Resident Involvement Officer for Acis, said: "The success of Firecracker during the last three years has been fantastic and we are delighted to be hosting another Firecracker event. As ever, the latest Firecracker promises to be bigger and better than the last. We have a whole range of activities on offer and some great partners involved."
Firecracker will be offering youngsters the chance to participate in a range of activities each week such as spray painting, nail art, cooking, bird box making and more. They'll also get a free hot meal and a drink.
Firecracker is a partnership scheme developed by Acis. This year Firecracker is being run in conjunction with #you:th, as well as supporting partners West Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Positive Futures, Image Skool,Hope Church, Hill Holt Wood, Lincolnshire Police and Fire Services, and Galatia - An Acis Willmott Dixon Partnership.
Lucy added: "It is testament to those involved with Firecracker that we are once again able to offer this series of events for free. The initiative aims to benefit the whole community by providing a positive outlet for local young people and helping to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour."
