Bids are being invited for funding from groups or individuals that aim to tackle youth or knife crime for consideration at the next Active Citizens Fund panel meeting which will be held in September.
Set up by the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, the Active Citizens Fund combines three previous streams of funding into one, with the aim of contributing to crime reduction and community safety, whilst at the same time enabling West Midlands Police to improve engagement with the public and encourage ‘Active Citizenship’.
“In this, the fourth year that the fund has been running, we’d like to fund projects that address youth crime and/or knife crime, so would encourage interest from groups or organisations that are placed to deliver innovative projects that can have a positive impact on the lives of young people.” said Engagement and Consultation Officer Kevin Pitt. “We are keen to hear about your ideas and want to see projects up and running as quickly as possible.”
