Police grants for community projects

South Yorkshire community projects which tackle policing priorities in the county had the chance to access a share of £190,000.

South Yorkshire Police Authority asked voluntary organisations and community groups to put forward an application for the funding as part of its Police Authority Community Grants Scheme 2012/13.

Grants from £30,000 to £50,000 were available to projects which addressed at least one of the priorities from the policing plan www.southyorkshire.police.uk/lpp such as improving public confidence and satisfaction, enhancing community safety, tackling crime at all levels, reducing serious and organised crime and protecting South Yorkshire from terrorism and extremism.

The Authority welcomed applications from all groups but especially those which delivered countywide projects, address anti-social behaviour have a direct impact on issues involving young people or reducing re-offending.

  • The closing date for applications was 4pm on Friday 27th April 2012.
  • Late applications will not be considered

More than 70 voluntary organisations and community groups applied for funding.  The Authority consulted with South Yorkshire Police before making a final decision on the submitted bids. Each of the successful five projects were chosen because their work supports people across the South Yorkshire region and for the positive impact the funded activity is expected to have on policing priority areas.

Applicants were informed of the results week commencing the 14th May 2012.
