Commissioner’s 2015/16 Community Grant Scheme Launched

12 May

The South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings is launching his
2015/16 Community Grant Scheme.

He would like to encourage non-profit organisations to bid for funding up to £25,000 to help provide services and support to others in South Yorkshire. Organisations are required to complement the Commissioner’s strategic priorities as set out in his new Police and Crime Plan – Putting Safety First.

There is total funding of £250,000 available and organisations can bid for any amount up to the £25,000 limit.

Dr Billings said: “This grant funding is open to applications from any organisation that can demonstrate they address one of these key priorities. As I have visited people across South Yorkshire, the main priority for them is to feel safe. That is why I have set my three key strategic priorities as: protecting vulnerable people; tackling crime and antisocial behaviour; and enabling fair treatment.

“Since becoming Police and Crime Commissioner, I have had the privilege of seeing where previous grant funding has helped to turn round lives. Applications are sought from large or small organisations across Barnsley, Doncaster,
Rotherham and Sheffield.

He continued: “This is an excellent opportunity for organisations to bid for additional funding to help them expand, diversify or venture into pastures new to help the people of South Yorkshire. Many individuals across the county are vulnerable and I would like to support any group that wants to help them take back control of their lives.”

The closing date for applications is Thursday, 28 May at 2pm. Application forms and further information can be found on the Commissioner’s website at http://www.southyorkshire-
pcc.gov.uk/Transparency/Grants/CommissionerCommunityGrantScheme2015-16.aspx
