Police and Crime Commissioner’s Funds

Police and Crime Commissioner Logo

The Commissioner has established two funds to make communities safer, the Safer Communities Fund and the Supporting Communities Small Grants Fund.

The Commissioner has pledged to secure services that empower partners and potential partners through regular opportunities to bid for grant funding for projects and contracts. He is inviting organisations to tell him how they can work with him to achieve his vision and make your communities safer through looking for new and exciting approaches, whilst still supporting those ideas that have been proven to work.

Extended details and application forms are to be found on the PCC’s website
