The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, and the Chief Constable, Francis Habgood, have opened a new grant round of the Police Property Act Fund.
Earlier this year, £97,950 was distributed to 20 different organisations, 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 two of the PCC’s strategic priorities in his Police and Crime Plan, which are:
-Prevention and Early Intervention
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to tackle:
-Hidden harm such as stalking, honour based abuse and forced marriage
-Peer on peer abuse
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 09:00 and applications will be considered jointly by the PCC and the Chief Constable. More information and the application form can be found on the website at www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk.
