Police Community Fund
What is the PCC Police Community Fund?
This fund aims to enable children and young people in Gwent to be safe, healthy and happy, building a better future for themselves and their community by tackling community based issues in a lasting and impactful way.
Building a positive relationship between children and young people and the police, based on mutual respect, is essential. Through focusing on early intervention and prevention the fund will support children and young people who are vulnerable or at-risk to move forward with their lives and realise their full potential, establishing resilient, safer and more inclusive communities.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams are well placed to know the needs of the local community so are fundamental in working with local organisations to support and help solve identified issues. Local Inspectors, together with Gwent Police representatives, will facilitate and enable the generation of project ideas from within their respective communities that target children and young people who are at risk of entering, or are already in the criminal justice system, or have been victims of crime.
Who can apply?
The fund will support not-for-profit organisations seeking to deliver projects and services working with children, young people or vulnerable adults under the age of 25 who live in the Gwent Police force area. The fund will focus on projects supporting children and young people who:
- may be in danger of entering the criminal justice system, or
- have become victims of crime.
Bids are encouraged for sums of between £10,000 and £50,000 and funding is available for up to three years.
The 2022/23 Police Community Fund application process has now closed. The successful applicants will be notified in March 2022.
