The Police and Crime Commissioner's Prevention Fund 2017/2018
Everyone has a responsibility to keep Leicestershire’s communities safe and healthy. The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Prevention Fund recognises the important role local groups and third sector organisations play in reducing harm and helping vulnerable people to overcome their problems before they escalate into crime.
Lord Willy Bach has agreed to set aside £250,000 for 2017/2018 to support grassroots groups across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland which address the community safety goals outlined in his Police and Crime Plan. A further £250,000 will be available in 2018/2019.
Grants will be allocated in a two-tiered system of up to £9,999pa and £10,000-£25,000pa. Funding grants for projects of £10,000 and above will only be awarded for exceptional projects.
The Commissioner is keen to work side-by-side with the community to address challenging issues which have a serious impact on public safety including hate crime, domestic violence and Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE). He is also committed to expanding help for vulnerable people at risk of becoming either a victim or perpetrator of crime.
