Antisocial Behaviour Prevention Grant

Prioritising neighbourhood crime:

When I was elected as Derbyshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, I promised to tackle the problems that matter most to our communities.

I have heard from many local people and victims of crime over the past two years whose lives have been made miserable by persistent antisocial behaviour and low-level disorder. This has to change.

I have launched my Antisocial Behaviour Prevention Grant scheme to invest in proven initiatives that stop problems happening now and in the long-term. I want to empower voluntary and community organisations to take a stand against nuisance behaviour and support the partnership work already underway to make our streets safer.

I believe antisocial behaviour is preventable with the right support and resources for young people. I also think communities should have the help and funding they need to play a proactive role in solving problems.

Through my Antisocial Behaviour Prevention Grant, I will invest £100k into projects that take positive action against antisocial behaviour. These could include sports and creative arts diversionary programmes, radio/film-making activities, drop-ins for young people, community clean-ups, intergenerational schemes, mentoring projects, education initiatives and parental support programmes.

Grants of up to £5k will be allocated to successful applicants who can show evidence of how they will make a difference to Derby and Derbyshire’s communities.

I want to make sure we are not only tackling serious and organised crime but the lower level issues that cause despair to local people every day. I want our communities to feel supported – wherever they live in the county – and I am determined to listen and act on their needs.

Every penny of this funding is important and I will make sure it is invested in the best possible way to protect our communities and prevent harm. Together, we will make a difference.
