Commissioner’s People Power Fund Grants

Tue 5 Jan 2016

Great ideas for community safety solutions come from local people – which is why Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis is inviting groups in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent to bid for money from the Commissioner’s People Power Fund.

The fund empowers local groups to find solutions to community safety problems through smaller grants of between £100 and £3,000.

These could range from the provision of positive activities for young people with the aim of reducing anti-social behaviour (ASB) in a local community, mentoring programmes for targeted groups in a community through to funding reassurance activities and respect events in specific areas.

The funding opens on 1st March and closes on the 14th April 2016.  For more information please go to the OPCC website http://www.staffordshire-pcc.gov.uk/people-power-fund/

They have organised a workshop for organisations to attend, to get information and advice on how to apply for the OPCC’s People Power Fund.  It will be held on Tuesday 2nd February from 2 – 4pm at Lichfield District Council.
