Second Chance to Help Tackle Crime Prevention

Second’s out today for funding from the 2013 Commissioner Grant Scheme to help grassroots organisations tackle policing priorities.

Shaun Wright, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, has today, 23 April, launched the second round of his grant scheme and he’s urging non-profit voluntary and community organisations to apply for grants up to £10,000.

In order to be considered for a grant, the projects must target at least one of Commissioner Wright’s priorities outlined in the Police and Crime Plan:

  • reduce antisocial behaviour;
  • protect the most vulnerable people;
  • improve visible policing;
  • prevent reoffending; and
  • ensure victims and witnesses get a better deal.

Said Commissioner Wright: “I welcome these second round of bids, aimed particularly at one-off projects and crime prevention schemes.

“It may be that local people want to establish a group to produce leaflets on various safety measures or buy anti-vandal paint or door locks, supporting the police in their role.

“We want to be able to reassure residents and previous victims of crime by using this money to good effect and I’m sure that people will come up with some great ideas.”

Forms and further information are available to download from and the closing date is 13 May, 2013. Only one application can be submitted by any non-profit organisation to each of the Commissioner grant schemes and proposals which have match funding will be looked upon favourably. The Commissioner will consult with South Yorkshire Police before announcing the successful applications.
