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.
Last year £92,950 was distributed to 28 different organisations in addressing Police and Crime Plan priorities 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 objectives in his Police and Crime Plan priorities, which are:
-Serious organised crime and terrorism
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to reduce exploitation of young people through gang membership, reduce or prevent violent crime, rehabilitate offenders or prevent exploitation by organised criminals. 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 12:00 on Monday 17 July 2018 and applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable. More information and the application form can be found on the website at www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk.
