Are you a Parish / Town Council, Community Group, Faith Group, Residents Association, LIONS, Rotary, Carers / Disability support Group?
The bidding criteria are certainly wide enough for you to bid for this money !!!  The process is very simple.
£100,000 available to community and voluntary groups
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, and the Chief Constable, Francis Habgood, have today (31/08) 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.
Last year over £140,000 was distributed to 40 different organisations to reduce re-offending and prevent cybercrime and the PCC and Chief Constable expect to allocate around £100,000 in this grant round.
Applications are now invited from local voluntary and community groups who can contribute towards a key aim in the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan priorities, which are:
Prevention and Early Intervention
Reducing Re-Offending
Serious Organised Crime and Terrorism
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that prevent ‘peer on peer abuse’, rehabilitate offenders, prevent exploitation or tackle elder abuse. However, all applications will be required to submit clear evidence of how their project or activity already contributes towards achieving the key aim indicated.
The closing date for this round of applications is 5pm Thursday 21st September 2017 and applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable.
Police and Crime Commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld said: “Many of the issues that I have highlighted in my Police and Crime Plan cannot be successfully tackled by any one organisation alone so it is crucial that we work in partnership. The local voluntary and community sector play an important part in our partnership work and there are many organisations in the Thames Valley that can offer a valuable contribution towards helping improve community safety.
“The Police Property Act Fund is a good opportunity to recognise this contribution and assist these organisations in continuing to make a positive change within our communities. In the past we have seen some truly brilliant successes as a result of this fund and I hope we will see many more from this round of funding.
“I would encourage any organisations who meet the criteria of the fund to apply and I look forward to seeing the applications.”
Chief Constable, Francis Habgood said: “Our force commitment says that we will work together to make our communities safer. I know that relatively small amounts of money can really help groups in the local and voluntary sector make a real difference. We have seen many examples of this in previous years and I would encourage people to apply if they meet the criteria for this year.
“Some of the money that we will be allocating has been seized from criminals. It is great to think that it is now being diverted to good causes across the Thames Valley.”
