The Hull Crime Reduction Fund – administered by the Hull Community Safety Partnership (CSP) with funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner – is currently open for applications from not for profit groups and organisations across Hull, who can apply for grants of up to £10,000.
Hull CSP Chair Tracy Harsley said:
We want to work more closely with communities and to support them in seeking to improve outcomes for residents and communities that will build resilience and reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, Keith Hunter, said:
One of the key aims of my police and crime plan is to deliver increasingly self-sustaining and safe communities. I have funded the community safety partnership in Hull to ensure community groups have a local point of contact and I hope the fund will encourage a greater community involvement to tackle crime and safety.
What the CSP will fund?
Not for profit groups/organisations can apply for grants of up to £10,000, but they must prove within their application how they support the delivery of the CSP priorities and the aims of Police and Crime plan and how they will sustain the project after initial funding.
- Reduce domestic abuse and violent behaviour
- Reduce offending and re-offending
- Reduce substance misuse
- Support victims and vulnerable people and communities
PCC Police and Crime Plan aims:
