Funding and Fundraising

The Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is inviting applications to the Community Safety Fund. A total of up to £400,000 is available to fund projects which can demonstrate a clear link to some of the key aims in the Police and Crime Plan:

Vulnerability
  • Key aim: better understanding by police and partners of the extent and nature of elder abuse, followed by positive action taken to address the issues uncovered.
Reducing re-offending
  • Key aim: a review by police and other criminal justice partners on whether processes for identifying and referring individuals in contact with the criminal justice system, into substance misuse services, are as effective as they could be.
  • Key aim: improved data sharing on gangs, with the aim of reducing exploitation of young people through gang membership and reducing and preventing violent crime, especially knife crime.
  • Key aim: a modern offender management strategy for Thames Valley addressing gaps in existing schemes and tackling offenders across the crime spectrum who pose the greatest risk or threat of harm.
Serious organised crime and terrorism
  • Key aim: better engagement and information sharing between police and organisations supporting vulnerable migrants and rough sleepers, with the aim of preventing exploitation by organised criminals.

The PCC is looking to fund 6 to 8 large scale projects.

Please note that the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), which is more suitable for smaller scale applications, will be opening in June 2018. Therefore, please consider whether that would be a more appropriate fund for your project before you complete an application to the Community Safety Fund (which is primarily for medium to large projects). Details of the PPAF will be available soon.
