Groups supporting their neighbourhoods and communities have again been asked to apply for money from the Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner’s Community Fund.

Launched last week by Vera Baird, the 2016/17 fund is available to group activities or projects supporting key priorities in the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.

Grants of up to £2,000 are available to charities, voluntary groups, community groups and social enterprises tackling anti-social behaviour, promoting crime prevention and building community confidence.

Any Northumberland group can apply for the funding with applicants asked to send an application form saying what they hope to achieve from their project and how it supports the Police and Crime Plan.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday, May 13. For more and details of how to apply, visit www.northumbria-pcc.gov.uk
