The window has opened for organisations in Lichfield to bid for grants to support community safety projects.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire’s People Power Fund offers between £300 and £1,000 to help support projects across the county.

In the past year, more than 200 initiatives received backing.

Matthew Ellis
Matthew Ellis, Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “The 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.

“If you’re a community group with good ideas to cut crime or make your area safer go to the website now to find out more.”

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.
