Vulnerable adults are to benefit from crime prevention measures thanks to a project involving Yorkshire Housing.

The housing association's Sheffield-based Home Improvement Agency won a £5,000 grant from the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner recently.

It will pay for security measures inside and outside people's homes - including window alarms, window locks and additional security locks for doors.

The scheme is aimed at vulnerable adults in areas of disadvantage in Rotherham, Barnsley and Sheffield affected by crimes such as burglary.
