Time running out to apply for community safety funding

Groups in Lichfield and Burntwood have less than a week left to bid for funding to make their communities safer.

Grants of between £100 and £3,000 are available from the Police and Crime Commissioner’s People Power Funding.

But the window for applications closes on September 14.

Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis said: “The fund is supporting locally-driven community safety activities – these could include providing long-term, sustainable positive activities for young people to help reduce anti-social behaviour, mentoring programmes for targeted local groups through to activities that reassure and improve the quality of life in local areas.

“The Commissioner’s People Power Fund puts £500,000 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.”

People Power applications need to be sponsored by the group’s Neighbourhood Police Officer or PCSO and will initially be assessed by the local Community Safety Partnership.
