New £10 million local anti-crime funding in England and Wales

New £10 million local anti-crime funding in England and Wales

The Government’s Home Office, working with the Community Development Foundation, has started accepting applications to its new Community Action Against Crime: Innovation Fund. £5 million is available this year and next to projects within or Wales that encourage greater community activism and innovation in tackling local crime issues that matter most to local communities.

The emphasis is on building effective partnerships, and encouraging voluntary and community organisations that have received little or no for this kind of work in the past to work with community safety partnerships and other agencies/organisations to co-design and co-deliver activities to cut crime.

Small Grants will be worth £1000 to £15,000 a year for up to two years. Year one runs from 5 September 2011 to 31 March 2012. Year two runs from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013. Projects must operate in a specific locality, not regionally or nationwide. Applications are invited from voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and informal groups. Grants must be spent mainly on revenue rather than capital needs.

Large Grants will be worth between £15,001 and £50,000 a year for up to two years. Otherwise the application details are much the same as for Small Grants. The main additional element is a larger amount of initial documentation required to back up your application and establish your ability to handle a larger sum of money.
