Welcome to the grants homepage. On here you will find all the  information you will need to apply for a Community Action Grant.

During his term Hardyal Dhindsa, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire will share £275,000 per year among community safety organisations that support his Police and Crime Plan Priorities. These include keeping vulnerable people safe from harm, supporting victims, maintaining strong and effective partnership working, tackling drugs and alcohol, supporting those with mental health issues and working with young people to break the cycle of offending and repeat victimisation. 

He has invited community groups, non-profit making organisations and third sector organisations to work with him to deliver his priorities at a local level.

“It is my belief that projects conceived and delivered at a grassroots level can make a huge difference to public safety, boost feelings of safety and reassurance and improve the quality of life overall.

“My grants scheme will enable community groups to achieve this by taking control of specific community problems and developing bespoke solutions that will improve life for everyone, both now and in the long-term.”

Large grants of between £2,501 and £25,000 will be available once during the year while smaller grants of up to £2,500 will be allocated three times per year. All successful grants will run for a maximum 12-month period.

If you have any questions regarding your funding application, please call the Grants Officer for a pre-application discussion on 0300 122 6006.
