Chair of the Police Community Trust Bea Salter with Sue Mountstevens at the launch
Communities and voluntary organisations will benefit from £200,000 to tackle issues in their local area following the launch of a Community Action Fund by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens.
The Commissioner’s Community Action Fund allows communities and groups to apply for up to £5,000 to tackle issues relating to the priorities set out in the Police and Crime Plan. The Commissioner is looking for projects to reduce anti-social behaviour,burglary and tackle domestic and sexual violence as well as support victims.
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “On a daily basis I experience the extraordinary work taking place within local communities across Avon and Somerset and my Community Action Fund is there to provide these projects with some additional support.
“I welcome applications and I look forward to seeing and hearing about all the things you do for your community in your local area. By working together we can make improvements and the change needed towards helping the communities of Avon and Somerset be safe and feel safe.”
Sue Mountstevens committed at her swearing in ceremony last November to dedicate a £200,000 fund to communities which has been launched in partnership with the Police Community Trust.
Applications are welcomed throughout the year with decisions made quarterly by the Trustees.
