Community safety projects invited to bid for grant funding

Leamington Editorial 17th Oct, 2023   0

COMMUNITY safety projects are being invited to bid for a share of £300,000 grant funding.

Projects and initiatives which help to prevent and deter crime and anti-social behaviour, or make a contribution to road safety, are being invited to bid for a slice of the grant funding by the Warwickshire’s police and crime commissioner, Philip Seccombe.

Organisations can apply for funding of up to £15,000.

Mr Seccombe said: “My grants fund is a vital way of supporting initiatives which help to support my ambition to reduce crime, support victims and make communities safer. This year I was able to award just under £300,000 of funding to a wide range of projects and I hope to be able to do similar again for 2024/25.




“By using the theme of prevention and diversion, I hope to see applications from a wide range of community groups, charities and other organisations with innovative projects that can make a real difference to communities and victims of crime, as well as those that prevent offences from happening in the first place. I also want to see applications being put forward that can make a real difference in making our roads safer, helping reduce death and serious injuries.”

Projects funded by the PCC’s office under the grants scheme must be delivered within the 2024/25 financial year. Organisations can submit up to two bids for funding, with each application evaluated separately on its own merits.


The closing date for applications is midnight on November 10.
