Ron Hogg's Community Safety Fund is managed by County Durham Community Foundation
The Police, Crime & Victims’ Commissioner (PCVC), in partnership with County Durham Community Foundation (CDCF), is making available a grants fund to support the community and voluntary sector of County Durham and Darlington. The fund will support projects and initiatives that help keep communities safe and contribute towards inspiring public confidence. The fund is not aimed at organisations that are already funded directly from core commissioned, statutory policing and community safety activities, but will support projects and initiatives that are additional and work at a local community level.
The key themes that the fund is looking to support include projects and activities that:
- Support those affected by crime to cope with the immediate aftermath and assist with their long-term recovery from the experience;
- Contribute to a reduction in offending and reoffending; and
- Help keep communities safe.
Size of Grant
Grants of between £2,000 and £7,500 are available.
When to apply
The Fund opens to applications on Monday 18th March 2019 and closes at noon on Friday 26th April 2019.
The decisions made by the panel will be final and all applicants will be notified about the outcome of their grant application no later than 28th June 2019.
Please note, groups holding a previous year’s award may only reapply to this round if they have successfully completed and reported on their previous grant
- All enquiries and applications must be directed through CDCF not the PCVC office
