Anti-Social Behaviour Prevention Grant – Round 2

31 May 2022

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 anti-social behaviour and low-level disorder. This has to change.

I have launched my Anti-Social 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.

Following its successful first round last year, the Anti-Social Behaviour Prevention Grant Scheme has re-opened for fresh applications to support the fight against anti-social behaviour and neighbourhood crime.

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

Grants of up to £5,000 will be allocated to successful applicants who can show evidence of how they will make a difference to Derby and Derbyshire’s communities.  In addition to voluntary groups, I would welcome applications from both Parish and Town Councils.

I want to make sure we are not only tackling serious and organised crime but those 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.

Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster

Please note:

Commissioner Angelique Foster wants to offer the opportunity to bid into this grant to as many applicants as possible and to fund a broad range of projects aiming to tackle anti-social behaviour in Derbyshire’s communities. In order to achieve this, there were two deadline dates.

Each Grant applicant goes through a rigorous due diligence process before the Commissioning Team considers the application. Once the due diligence process has been completed the Commissioning Team judges the application on various fields such as:

  • Summary of proposed project
  • Evidence of need for the project
  • Who will benefit and how the grant will secure, or continue to secure, crime and disorder reduction
  • Evidence of Partnership
  • Track Record of Delivery
  • Exit Strategy
  • Added Value

Once the Commissioning Team has judged the application they will make a recommendation to the Police and Crime Commissioner and their Senior Leadership Team where a decision is then reached.
