Grants Available for Communities to Help Prevent Crime

A new fund has been launched in partnership between the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), Somerset Community Foundation (SCF) and Quartet Community Foundation (QCF).

The Commissioner's Crime Prevention Fund will support community projects and activities across Avon and Somerset that help to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour. Community groups and charities can now apply for grants (money that does not need to be paid back) of between £1,000 to £5,000 from the Commissioner's Crime Prevention Fund to help create safer communities in our area.

Mark Shelford, Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner, said of the fund: "I am delighted that my office, SCF and QCF have set up this important Crime Prevention Fund to help create safer communities".

A total of £200,000 is available from the fund. There will be three opportunities to apply across the year.

Any groups based in South Gloucestershire should apply to Quartet Community Foundation here
