Feb. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- Non-profit voluntary and community organisations throughout South Yorkshire are being encouraged to apply for a grant from £10,000 up to £50,000 to help towards their projects.  Later funding rounds scheduled to open in April and again in the autumn will support smaller projects awarding from £1 to £10,000.

In order to be considered for a grant, the projects must target at least one of Commissioner Wright’s priorities outlined in the Police and Crime plan:

•   Protect the most vulnerable people from crime
•   To reduce antisocial behaviour
•   Improve visible policing
•   Prevent reoffending
•   Ensuring victims and witnesses receive a better deal

Commissioner Wright said:

“I am delighted to open this scheme and am looking forward to applications from groups across the county.  I know what vital services voluntary groups provide in our communities while relying on support from the public.  These groups often suffer most in these harsh economic times and I want to help them continue their valuable work. I am investing monies to fund projects in our communities that make a real difference”

Forms and further information are available for download from and groups have until 3pm on 06 March to submit their applications. The Commissioner will consult with South Yorkshire Police before announcing the successful applications.

1.   Commissioner Wright has already stated his commitment to working in partnership across a range of agencies at local, regional and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime in South Yorkshire. He wants to ensure that community needs are met as effectively as possible, and he recognises that by building confidence and restoring trust, this in turn will greatly improve local relationships.

2.   The Police and Crime Commissioner, based at the South Yorkshire Joint Authorities in Barnsley, is an elected individual who oversees policing in South Yorkshire (Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster). The role of the Commissioner is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. The Commissioner does not run the police, as this is the responsibility of the Chief Constable.

3.   The Commissioner is responsible for representing the public within South Yorkshire, cutting crime, reducing reoffending and delivering an effective and efficient police service within South Yorkshire.

4.   The Police and Crime Commissioner replaced the former Police Authority on the 22nd of November 2012.
