Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Please find below details of the latest Community Fund round, which is now open for applications until 4pm on Friday 4th March.

The criteria are defined below, but community groups in RBWM could possibly apply for those I have highlighted in yellow

The procedure has been made fairly simple, so any community group will be able to apply.  Also, RBWM has a professional bid writer available to you that will help with the appropriate wording / format.  If you want to proceed with a bid, email me the details and I will put you in contact with Nicola – who is brilliant and really helpful to make sure your idea fits the criteria.

£100,000 available to community groups helping to support policing and prevent crime

Matthew Barber, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) has opened applications to his Community Fund, to support local projects tackling crime.

The Community Fund supports voluntary and community groups, assisting both the PCC and Thames Valley Police, in helping to prevent crime and keep communities safe. £100,000 is available in the latest round of funding, with applications to the fund opening twice a year.

Money for the scheme comes from the Community Fund, which is jointly managed by the PCC and the Chief Constable, and is created from the proceeds from the sale of items seized from criminals that cannot be returned to their rightful owners.

Organisations from across Thames Valley can apply for grants for projects that support one of the PCC’s ‘Police and Criminal Justice Plan’ priorities:
  • Strong Local Policing (preventing crime & protecting communities)
  • Fighting Serious Organised Crime (protecting vulnerable people)
  • Fighting Fraud & Cybercrime (fighting modern crimes)
  • Improving the Criminal Justice System (reducing re-offending)
  • Tackling illegal encampments (reducing the impact of encampments)
Matthew said: “Community and voluntary groups are extremely active across the force area, and play a significant role in trying to help tackle local issues around crime prevention and supporting vulnerable groups. 

“I’m pleased to be launching this latest round of the Community Fund which enables me to recognise the work they are doing in helping their communities and supporting local policing. I hope to receive applications focusing on a range of areas within my Police and Criminal Justice Plan including crime prevention, modern crimes such as cybercrime and fraud, and reducing re-offending.”

Chief Constable John Campbell, said: “Using money generated from the sale of items seized from criminals that cannot be returned to their rightful owners is a great way of funding worthy projects and other work across the Thames Valley.

“This funding will play a big part in helping voluntary and community groups across the Thames Valley. It will allow them to continue to run projects that play such a big role in preventing crime and protecting our communities.

“As ever, we are particularly keen to receive bids for this money from organisations that support our priority areas."

The closing date for this round of applications is 4pm on Friday 4th March and applications will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable.
