£1m to aid projects to fight crime
11:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Applications are being taken for the second round of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s £1m Innovation Fund.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon Angus Macpherson is looking to commission community and voluntary projects to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, and schemes supporting victims and vulnerable people in innovative ways.
The deadline for applications for the second funding tranche of £315,000 is November 15. In July, 12 projects were commissioned in the first funding round.
Mr Macpherson said: “I was delighted to commission a range of exciting projects through the first funding round.
“By funding those 12 projects we also helped to unlock £163,000 in match funding and I’m hoping a similar sum will be unlocked again during this round.”
