The Commissioner’s Grant Scheme aims to fund projects that will deliver “A safer, more secure Warwickshire”.
The Commissioner is inviting organisations to bid for funding for initiatives that deliver targeted drugs and alcohol interventions to those at higher risk:-
- within the Criminal Justice services;
- by raising young people’s awareness of the consequences of substance misuse and reducing the risk of them entering the Criminal Justice system.
Please note that the PCC has already invited organisations to bid for funding against several other grant funds as detailed below:-
- Addressing Sexual Abuse and/ or Child Sexual Exploitation;
- Delivering positive diversionary activities to identified young people;
- Delivering a countywide Domestic Abuse perpetrator intervention;
- PCC small grant awards.
The successful applicants for these grants will be published on the website in Spring 2018 and no further applications for projects in these areas are being sought.
Who can apply?
The grant scheme for targeted drug and alcohol interventions is open to both established and new service providers. All applications will need to detail and provide evidence as to how their drugs and alcohol intervention:-
- is targeted to those at higher risk, either within the Criminal Justice services or how it will prevent children and young people entering Criminal Justice services
- will contribute to addressing the priorities of the Warwickshire Police and Crime Plan:-
- Put Victims and Survivors First;
- Ensure Efficient and Effective Policing;
- Protect People From Harm;
- Prevent and Reduce Crime.
Further information in regards to the Warwickshire Police and Crime Plan can be accessed on our Police and Crime Plan pages.
Applications will be welcomed from community, voluntary, third sector and statutory organisations that deliver projects or services at a countywide level or for projects that are targeted in one or more local authority areas within Warwickshire.
The PCC will not fund:-
- Profit-making projects;
- Contributions towards major refurbishment, building or maintenance work;
- A contribution to an organisation’s running costs for an unspecified purpose;
- Projects that promote religious or party political beliefs;
- Projects or activities that have taken place prior to the 1 April 2018;
