The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Anthony Stansfeld, and the Chief Constable, Francis Habgood, have opened a new grant round of the Police Property Act Fund.
The Fund, which is jointly managed by the PCC and the Chief Constable, is created from money recovered by the police and the proceeds from the sale of items that cannot be returned to identified owners, including seizures from criminals.
Applications are now invited from local voluntary and community groups who can contribute towards two of the PCC’s strategic priorities in his Police and Crime Plan priorities, which are:
- Prevention and Early Intervention
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to tackle:
- Mental health,
- Hidden harm such as stalking, honour based abuse and forced marriage,
- Hate Crime,
- Peer on peer abuse,
- Female Genital Mutilation,
- Road safety.
All applications will be required to submit clear evidence of how their project or activity will contribute towards achieving the key aim indicated.
The closing date for this round of applications is Monday 17 December at 9am.
Applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable.
