The latest round of funding has been made available by the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner to help communities prevent crime and keep their areas safe.

Matthew Barber has opened the first application round for the £200,000 Community Fund for 2024.   Money for the scheme comes from the sale of items seized from criminals which can’t be returned to their rightful owners.

Mr Barber said: “We are fortunate to have an active community across Thames Valley, who play a significant role in supporting Thames Valley Police to tackle local issues around crime prevention and supporting vulnerable groups in our communities.

“I have had the pleasure of visiting a number of previously-funded organisations over the past year, seeing first-hand the positive impact funding received through my Community Fund has had on our communities.

“I look forward to receiving applications which focus on a range of areas within my Police and Criminal Justice Plan including crime prevention, cybercrime and fraud, supporting victims and reducing re-offending.”

Application rounds are held twice each year and the closing date for this round is 12pm on Monday January 29.   Bids for money will be considered jointly by the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable, Jason Hogg.
