• Active Citizens Fund West Midlands Police

    The purpose of the funding is to support, enable and empower active citizens. To support this there are two types of funding available:

    • Community Projects will usually require larger amounts of funding and will be supported at partnership level with engagement from other agencies. There is no upper or lower limit on the amount of funding that could be available, but these funds are designed to support projects rather than one-off expenses or events. There is an expectation that these projects will be sustainable beyond the period for which funding is provided, and may take a number of years to show benefits.
    • Small Grants may be used to help the community to purchase equipment or may be used to support a one-off community event or initiative. These grants will usually be smaller amounts, although there is no upper or lower limit.

    The funding is aimed at use by smaller community based voluntary and community sector organisations and groups and all applications must be able to show impact on the local policing priorities and the project or activity must be of direct benefit to the residents of that area. Further information is available here.  There is no funding date though  each Local Policing Unit has a limited amount of funding available to allocate.
