Interventions for victims of crime that are free at point of delivery are more likely to be successful.
All successful applicants will be required to send in a press release prior to release of funding – this will be passed to the PCC’s office for comment and returned for distribution.
What sort of work will the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Fund (previously Safer Suffolk Fund) support?
Created by Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, the fund is seeking to support organisations that can show clear measureable outcomes that are addressing the objectives in the Police and Crime Plan for Suffolk 2017 – 2021. Police and Crime Plan link
Grants between £250 and £20,000 should look to address at least one of the following key areas of focus from the Police and Crime Plan:
Whilst addressing at least on the above key issues, must also have three clear measurable outcomes (as a result of this funding XX will happen please use numbers or percentages to measure against, along with key baseline data)
A full end of grant monitoring report will be expected at the end of the intervention. This will need to include benchmarking of the beneficiaries at the beginning and end of the service, i.e. how were they referred to the service, what crimes had been committed etc.
If you are unsure about how to determine what the outcomes would be, please tell us about the inputs /outputs you will put in place, and the outcomes should come from these. As a general rule, think of the term “as a result of” when considering what the outcomes of the project will be.
Please note the outcomes need to be aligned to the Police and Crime Plan.
If you feel that your proposal matches these priorities and would like to apply to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Fund we would ask you in the first instance, to telephone the Grants Team on 01473 602602 to discuss your proposed application. If it is agreed that you meet the fund criteria, you will be encouraged to complete a grant application form.
What we will not fund?
