People Power Funding window opens

People-Power-Fund-StickerThe Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire is inviting groups with bright ideas for community safety solutions in Newcastle-under-Lyme to apply for money from the People Power Fund today (1 August).

As part of his commitment to local communities, Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Ellis, is again providing £500,000 in 2016/17 through the fund in the form of grants of between £100 and £3,000. The window for the latest round of applications for People Power Funding opens today and closes on the 14 September.

The fund is supporting locally-driven community safety activities throughout Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. These could include providing long-term, sustainable positive activities for young people to help reduce anti-social behaviour, mentoring programmes for targeted local groups through to activities that reassure and improve the quality of life in local areas.
