This message is dated Thursday 30th May 2019 - for the whole area.

just in red hot off the press.

The next round of Police Property Act bids have been announced:

The criteria look perfect for community groups working in RBWM.  The forms are very simple, but if you need help, RBWM has a professional Bid writer, who can finalise the wording. - Nicola is brilliant at what she does !

Please think about how you or a group you are connected with, could bid for this money.  If we don't get it - it will simply be spent elsewhere !


£140,000 available to community and voluntary groups
 
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, and the Chief Constable, John Campbell, have today (30/05) opened a new grant round of the Police Property Act Fund.
 
The Fund, which is jointly managed by the PCC and the Chief Constable, is created from money recovered by the police and the proceeds from the sale of items that cannot be returned to identified owners, including seizures from criminals.
 
Last year £198,650 was distributed to 52 different organisations in addressing Police and Crime Plan priorities and the PCC and Chief Constable expect to allocate around £140,000 in this grant round.
 
Applications are now invited from local voluntary and community groups who can contribute towards two of the PCC’s strategic priorities in his Police and Crime Plan priorities, which are:
 
  1. Reducing Reoffending
  2. Local response to Serious Organised Crime and Terrorism
 
Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to tackle:
 
  • Substance abuse
  • Gangs and knife crime
  • Offender management
  • Domestic violence perpetrators
  • Public awareness of serious organised crime
  • Prevent violent extremism
  • Dare to Share culture across agencies who deal with vulnerable young people and adults.
  • Exploitation of vulnerable people
 
All applications will be required to submit clear evidence of how their project or activity will contribute towards achieving the key aim indicated.
 
The closing date for this round of applications is 9am Thursday 20th June and applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable.
 
Police and Crime Commissioner, Anthony Stansfeld said:  “I am pleased to be launching another round of the Police Property Act Fund.  Every year, I am delighted to see the good work that is being carried out by the voluntary and community sector and the difference they make. 
 
“Working in partnership with both statutory and voluntary organisations is crucial when addressing issues such as re-offending and serious organised crime.  I know there are many voluntary organisations working within the community making a valuable contribution in tackling these issues at a local level and I look forward to seeing the applications”.
 
Chief Constable, John Campbell said: “Our officers and staff are working hard to prevent crime and disorder, safeguard the vulnerable and when crime occurs bring offenders to justice. This includes seizing assets from those who seek to make a living from crime.
 
“Today we are launching the Police Property Act fund which allocates funding to voluntary and community groups across the Thames Valley who run projects that contribute to reducing serious and organised crime and reoffending.
I look forward to seeing the positive impact that this funding can have on our communities.”
