The Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside is inviting charities, community groups and social enterprises who deliver projects that stop problems before they occur, reduce opportunities for crime and deterring people from becoming involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour, to apply to the Crime Prevention Fund.
Grants of between £5,000 and £25,000 are available. The expectation is that most projects will be delivered over 12 months however, projects over a longer period may be considered. Consortia bids are encouraged and priority will be given to projects that tackle serious and organised crime. Projects must contribute to at least one of the following Police and Crime Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan priorities:
- Prevent crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
- Tackling serious and organised crime
- Support victims, protect vulnerable people and maintain public safety
- Working in partnership to improve road safety
The closing date for applications is 11 June. To find out more and how to apply, visit the Police and Crime Commissioner’s website.
