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-

Transform your area with Our Place – Applications for the grants programme are now open

24 Apr

What is Our Place?

Our Place gives your community control over local services – it helps bring communities together in partnership with local organisations and service providers to look at the issues that most matter to them. You can influence how local budgets are spent by redesigning, managing or delivering services locally. Your community may be lacking in provision for young children, debt and poverty could be putting pressure on the local health service, high unemployment may be triggering anti-social behaviour, and lack of transport links creating rural isolation amongst older people. Our Place can help you come up with a solution which will transform the area you live in!

What does the programme require you to do?

As an Our Place area you would be able to access grants of £8,000 during the programme. 20 areas that identify innovative and powerful solutions to challenging issues – ‘breaking new ground’ projects can apply for grants of up to £12,000. Have you got a groundbreaking idea?

Success stories

Our Place 2015-16 comes after a successful first year of the programme. Take a look at some of the inspiring projects from last year.

Our Place Smethwick –  bringing together local networks to help integrate a diverse community with a history of unrest

Our Place Ventnor – addressing deprivation and unemployment  in a coastal town by working with the private sector and others

Our Place Bradford – creating a local space for drop-in services, activities and training to address social isolation and mental health issues
