Conditions of grant funding
Making an application
Before applying, please refer to the full Police and Crime Plan for Suffolk 2017 – 2021 which details further information on the priority areas: Suffolk PCC – Police and Crime Plan, however as an overview the following information will support you in making an application:
It is recognised that VCS organisations play a significant role in reducing crime and disorder, and in supporting victims. Therefore, the fund is looking for strong applications from organisations that are providing support in partnership/collaboration, where links can also be made with the key areas of focus in the Police and Crime Plan:
In addition they should identify how they meet one of these key themes:
Interventions that are free at point of delivery for victims of crime, 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. In addition, wherever possible, visits are requested to successful grant recipients.
Outcomes and monitoring
All funding supported must show three clear measurable outcomes which will have to be reported on at the end of the grant funding.
If you are unsure how to describe what the outcomes of your project or intervention will be, as a general rule, think of the phrase ‘as a result of …’ and describe what will be qualitatively or quantitively different as a direct result of your inputs.
Please note: the outcomes need to be aligned to the Police and Crime Plan.
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.
Wherever possible, visits to funded organisations will take place and, therefore, please ensure, if successful, that you keep Suffolk Community Foundation up to date with opportunities, with as much notice as possible.
If you feel that your proposal addresses the criteria of the Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner’s Fund and plan, please complete a grant application form. If you need support, please call a member of the Grants Team on 01473 602602.
