Safer in Sussex Community Fund

There’s still time to apply for the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Safer in Sussex Community Fund.

I was delighted to launch my Safer in Sussex Community Fund at the end of last year, which is a new initiative that will provide financial support to innovative local projects that aim to make our communities safer.

Applications will be considered on a quarterly basis and there’s still time to submit your bid before the first deadline on 31 March.

I welcome applications from all local groups and organisations that can demonstrate how they are tackling the issues in their area that support the priorities set out in my Police & Crime Plan. These include commissioning initiatives that tackle crime, reduce reoffending and address community priorities such as alcohol, drugs, anti-social behaviour, domestic abuse and road safety.

I want to help communities work together to come up with ways of tackling crime and disorder and I am keen to support projects that demonstrate strong partnership working. I will be working with local partners and agencies to ensure this support complements existing activity.

More information about the Fund and how to apply is available on my website: http://www.sussex-pcc.gov.uk/safer-in-sussex-community-fund/

I look forward to receiving your applications.

Best wishes,

Katy Bourne

Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner
