Thames Valley Community Fund open for applications

£100,000 is being made available for local voluntary and community groups following the sale of items seized by Police in multiple operations, which cannot be returned to their rightful owners.

The Community fund, which is jointly managed by Thames Valley Police Chief Constable, John Campbell and Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Barber, aims to put money that has been made following the sale of items seized from criminals, to worthy initiatives within the community. Funding is made available twice a year and organisations from across the force area are invited to apply.

Community and voluntary groups are now able to apply for funding to deliver projects that tackle one of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Police and Criminal Justice Plan priorities:

-Strong Local Policing (preventing crime & protecting communities)
-Fighting Serious Organised Crime (protecting vulnerable people)
-Fighting Fraud & Cybercrime (fighting modern crimes)
-Improving the Criminal Justice System (reducing re-offending)
-Tackling illegal encampments (reducing the impact of encampments)

The closing date for this round of applications is 16:00 on Friday 4 March and applications will be considered jointly by the Chief Constable and the Police and Crime Commissioner.
