Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis is inviting groups to apply for money from his People Power Fund.

More than £500,000 has been set aside to help make local areas safer.

Mr Ellis said: “The People Power Fund puts half a million pounds back into local communities and is easy and simple to apply for.

“It’s about local ideas to sort out local issues like anti-social behaviour. If you’ve got a good idea, the People Power Fund may be able to help you achieve it.”

The window for the latest round of applications is open until April 14. For more details and to find out how to apply, visit
