Focusing on Vulnerability, and Prevention and Early Intervention, the next round of the Police Property Act Fund is now open for applications. The fund is open to local voluntary and community groups across the Thames Valley, who can contribute towards these strategic priorities.

The £170,000 Fund is jointly managed by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, and the Chief Constable, John Campbell. It has been created from money recovered by the police and the proceeds from the sale of items that cannot be returned to identified owners, including seizures from criminals.

Some examples of projects that may be considered include those that aim to tackle:

  • Elder abuse
  • Hidden harm such as stalking, honour based abuse and forced marriage
  • Peer on peer abuse
  • Hate crime
  • Mental Health

All applications will be required to submit clear evidence of how their project or activity will contribute towards achieving the key aim indicated.  The closing date for this round of applications is 12pm Friday 22nd November 2019 and applications will be considered jointly by the PCC and the Chief Constable.

More information and the application form can be found at: https://www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk/get-involved/police-property-act-fund/

Successful recipients will be invited to attend a presentation ceremony, due to be held in the New Year.
