Funding! Police Commissioner's Vulnerability Fund

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa has developed a new Vulnerability Fund - worth £485k - as part of a dedicated effort to tackle the social problems known to increase the risk of crime or victimisation. 

Grants of £1,000 are available from BCVS for projects:

  • that help individuals to live safely and without fear of crime in their homes
  • which help to tackle problems of crime or anti-social behaviour
  • are organised by community/neighbourhood groups
  • that can show they make a real difference to local communities 
  • that provide a sustainable approach to tackling long term problems
  • that include partners from other groups or authorities where possible

If you have an idea that could meet these objectives, BCVS will help you to shape the project and complete the application form. Completed applications will be submitted to a grants panel for a decision on whether they are funded.
