Community groups and voluntary organisations across Avon and Somerset are being invited to bid for grants of up to £3,000 - for groups that provide a positive and lasting impact across the local community.
In the latest round of funding over £25,000 was awarded to thirteen different projects which offer diversionary activities for young people, provide crime prevention solutions such as the installation of CCTV and tackle anti-social behaviour. If you’re running a project that is ensuring your community is safe and feels safe, please apply to the Community Action Fund. To qualify, projects should demonstrate how they will enable communities to come together and tackle issues in their local area relating to the priorities in the Police and Crime Plan: protecting the most vulnerable from harm, strengthening local policing teams, ensuring the police have the right culture, equipment and culture and working together effectively.
