Grant Awards 2015-16


Round 6 - Grants now awarded

Since coming into office in 2012, the Commissioner has committed £250,000 a year as a grant pot to support crime prevention initiatives.  He has invited public sector, community groups and third sector organisations to work with him to deliver his priorities at a local level.

£250,000 was once again set aside for 2015-16 to fund projects to assist in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour, protect victims and vulnerable people, and support witnesses. This was referred to as Round 6 of the Crime Prevention Grant.

There was one round of applications to the Commissioner’s Crime Prevention Grant in 2015-16. Applications were invited for either a Small Grant (up to £5,000) or a Large Grant (between £5,000 and £25,000).

A copy of the application forms for both the Small and Large Grant's can be found below in the accompanying literature section. There is also a copy of the guidance document and grant conditions.

Please note that the projects which have been funded through this grant round will run for a maximum twelve month period from 1st September 2015 to 31st August 2016.
