Cornish Communities Offered Cash To Help Cut Crime
8:00am 26th August 2013
Cornish communities are being offered a cash boost to help tackle crime on their doorsteps.
The Duchy and Devon Police and Crime Commissioner is stumping up a total of two hundred thousand pounds.
Groups and charities are being urged to bid for a share to help keep their own area safe.
Tony Hogg said: "I can't emphasise enough, from my own experience, the difference this can make. In many areas, voluntary sector organisations particularly will be struggling, with the economy and such like, and struggling to balance their books, and they may need to be tided over.
"A small amount of resources applied, two or three thousand pounds, and in my experience the voluntary sector will then multply that money in their own efforts, in their own agility and deliver tremendous results for a small amount of money.
"It's there to help with ideas, with projects. They need to start a particular project and need a bit of launch money or they want to launch a seminar on a particular subject and give it visibility."
Two rafts of grants will be handed out in the first year, and will be announced in December and May next year.
The closing date for applications is October 31, 2013 and May 31, 2014.
Application forms can be downloaded on the PCC website, Devon Reform or Cornwall Volunteer Sector Forum, or by calling 01392 430 228.
