Police and Community Safety Partnership Grant Programme 2017-2018
Wed, May 10, 2017
The Police and Community Safety Partnership have opened their Grant Programme for 2017-2018.
The grant programme has been designed to support, promote and develop community safety initiatives which focus on at least one of the following three strategic priorities:
Early Intervention: Initiatives designed to reduce the risk of individuals, especially young people aged up to 17 years, from coming into contact with the criminal justice system.
Alcohol, Drug & Substance Abuse: Working to achieve a reduction in alcohol, drug and substance abuse including prescription medication.
Anti-Social Behaviour: This encompasses a range of behaviours including noise, vandalism, graffiti, anti-social driving, or causing annoyance to people not in the same household.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for activities that will make a positive difference to a specific situation within at least one of these themes.
More detailed information can be found in the Guidance Notes which are available when you click through to the online application system http://causeway.eformz.info/
