Voluntary and community groups in Doncaster can apply for funding from the 2013 Commissioner Grant Scheme to help grassroots organisations tackle policing priorities.

Shaun Wright, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, this week launched the second round of his scheme to give grants of up to £10,000.

In order to be considered for a grant, the projects must target at least one of Commissioner Wright’s priorities outlined in the Police and Crime Plan to

reduce antisocial behaviour; protect the most vulnerable people; improve visible policing; prevent reoffending; and ensure victims and witnesses get a better deal.

Said Commissioner Wright: “I welcome these second round of bids, aimed particularly at one-off projects and crime prevention schemes.

“We want to be able to reassure residents and previous victims of crime by using this money to good effect and I’m sure that people will come up with some great ideas.”

Forms and further information are available to download from http://www.southyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk and the closing date is May 13. Only one application can be submitted by any non-profit organisation to each of the Commissioner grant schemes and proposals which have match funding will be looked upon favourably.
