Police & Crime Commissioner’s Community Fund
The Community Fund is now closed. This website will be updated once the fund has been re-opened.
The Community Fund is specifically for access by the local community, third sector and voluntary groups within Cumbria. It is specifically aimed at supporting projects that are provided within local communities for the benefit of that community.
The fund is particularly looking to support organisations which believe they can have an impact on the priorities within the Police and Crime Plan:-
- Anti- Social Behaviour – including Alcohol- Related Offending
- Youth Justice
- Rural Crime
- Domestic Abuse
- Sexual Violence
- Support for Victims
- Preventing Re-offending
- Hate Crime which encompasses hate, disability, sexual orientation, race, transgender, and religion
- Cyber Crime
The objective is to support community groups to deliver a change within their community which benefits members and supports the Police and Crime Plan.
The fund will be used to award grants following a funding application. This information pack will explain the process and contains the forms you will need to apply for funding. Funding will be awarded on the basis of the expected outcomes that your group aim to achieve from a funding award. Grants will be awarded for amounts between £1,000 and £10,000.
Each grant will be paid in two stages, 80% at the start of the project and 20% at the end of the project. The 20% final payment will be made at the end of the project subject to us having received a report from you setting out how the grant has helped you achieve your objectives and what changes it has brought about.
