The PCC Grant is a newly created funding stream to support the achievement of the priorities within the Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan. A number of the Police and Crime Commissioner's intentions are solely reliant on this Grant to support the delivery of his Plan, examples include:-
• identifying children at risk of child sexual exploitation
• identifying individuals/families at risk of domestic violence, and equipping them with the skills, confidence and knowledge to recognise when they are at risk and take appropriate action
• support for those affected by burglary, vehicle crime, hate crime, domestic abuse, serious sexual assault
There is indicative funding of £100,000 available between October 2013 and March 2013. The maximum amount of funding that will be awarded per application will be £10,000. The allocations of this grant will be distributed between successful grant applications received in July and November 2013. The deadline for round one is 29th July 2013. More »
The Grant is available to any organisation. However, the Police and Crime Commissioner is keen to support smaller organisations with a turnover of less than £100,000.
