The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Nottinghamshire, Caroline Henry, has announced new Make Notts Safe Grants which aim to empower local communities and local organisations to deliver key priorities in the Make Notts Safe Plan.
The format of these grants has changed from previous years, so online briefing events are being held via Microsoft Teams to provide attendees with:
- an overview of the new Make Notts Safe Grants and themes
- an overview of the application process
- an opportunity to ask any questions.
Briefings will take place on Tuesday 1 February, from 5pm to 6.30pm, and Thursday 3 February, from 2pm to 3.30pm.
Please email email@example.com, stating which date you would like to attend so that you can be sent the appropriate Teams link.
Overview of the Grants
Make Notts Safe Grants will fund community and voluntary organisations with multi-year funding through thematic funding rounds.
- The first thematic funding round is Youth Diversion. The aim of this themed funding is to prevent crime by supporting targeted projects and initiatives to divert at risk young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour.
- The second thematic funding round is Hidden Harm. The aim of this themed funding is to protect vulnerable people from hidden harm by supporting targeted projects and initiatives to reduce hidden harm, including child sexual and/or criminal exploitation, honour-based abuse and female genital mutilation.
The deadline for applications to both thematic rounds is 12 noon on Monday 7 March 2022.
In addition to the thematic funding rounds there is a Make Notts Safe Community Chest to provide short term (6 months to 1 year) funding; and an Innovation Fund to enable organisations to pilot and evaluate genuinely new and innovative activity.
The Community Chest will have two rounds each financial year. Applications are currently open until 12 noon on Monday 7 March 2022. Grants of up to £5,000 are available to enable local delivery against the PCC’s priorities.
The criteria for the Innovation Fund will be published later in 2022.
Please ensure that you first read the Make Notts Safe Grants Overview and the FAQ Document before you proceed with an application.
