Police and Crime Commissioner announces focus on crime prevention with latest round of funding bids
05 July 2023
The Police and Crime Commissioner, Donna Jones, has launched a new funding opportunity aimed at preventing crime across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
This is the second round of the Commissioner’s Emerging Needs Fund and applications must demonstrate how they prevent people becoming victims of crime, stop crimes occurring in the first place, or reduce crime from continually reoccurring.
The maximum amount of funding available per application is £25K which can be either for a project or a physical item or items that demonstrate the above criteria can be achieved.
PCC Donna Jones said: “My vision, since being elected as Police Commissioner, is for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to be two of the safest places in the country to live, work and visit.
“The priorities in my Police and Crime Plan ensure that communities are safer and that everyone can go about their daily lives without the fear of violence or intimidation.
“We must all work together collectively to prevent crime, and I’m looking forward to hearing from organisations with new and exciting approaches that will complement the existing support and the partnerships that are already working across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.”
To apply for the funding, visit the PCC’s website at Apply for funding – Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner (hampshire-pcc.gov.uk).
Applicants are urged to read the ‘Guide to Applying for Funding’ document online thoroughly beforehand and to also complete the Safeguarding Checklist form.
The application window closes at 1pm on Thursday 24 August 2023.
The first round of funding from the Commissioner’s Emerging Needs Fund (CENF) was announced earlier this year and focused on combating Rural Crime.
