COMMUNITY SAFETY & VIOLENCE REDUCTION UNIT FUND 2021-22 - 1st December
NPCC and VRU Community Safety and Violence Reduction Unit fund which has opened
This Fund will provide grants to third sector community based organisations to enable local delivery against the Police and Crime Plan and the purpose and vision of the Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU).
Whilst final budget decisions have yet to be made, the Commissioner (also Chair of the VRU) hopes to be able to provide grant funding of around £250,000. The funding is available to support third sector organisations (i.e. organisations that are not for profit and non governmental, for example registered charities and social enterprises) to assist the Commissioner to reduce crime and protect victims, witnesses and vulnerable people.
The Nottinghamshire Police & Crime Plan has a number of strategic themes and key activities. The Commissioner has identified a number of areas where third sector organisations are well placed to help deliver the Plan and the vision of the VRU via grants from this fund. Details of these areas can be found in the Guidance Document which can be downloaded below. Applications for funding to deliver activity in these areas will score more highly in the evaluation of the grant applications.
Applications are invited for up to a maximum of £25,000 and organisations may apply for one project only with successful projects delivering during some or all of the period 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022 only.
The deadline for receipt of electronic and hard copy applications is midday on Monday 11th January 2021.
