Open and Transparent Quality Mark 2016/17 and 2017/18

27 organisations to receive OPCC grants as part of a bid to tackle antisocial behaviour

A total of £61k has been awarded to 27 organisations and community groups across Devon and Cornwall in Police and Crime Commissioner’s Alison Hernandez’s small grant scheme.

 

Safe, resilient and connected communities are at the heart of the commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.

This fund was made available for community groups and organisations on projects that will have a positive impact on antisocial behaviour and to drive locally-led initiatives to help communities help themselves.

Each year the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner provides funding to a range of organisations beyond the police to support the delivery of initiatives and programmes to keep people safe and  prevent low-level crime.

“When out and about engaging with our communities, I regularly hear that ASB is something that affects people’s day-to-day lives,” said Alison.

“While for some people this may not be a big concern, for many it affects their quality of life each and every day and I want everyone in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to feel safe in the areas where they live, work and play.

“There is some great innovative work taking place across Cornwall, Devon and the isles of Scilly and I am pleased to be able to provide support which will make these projects even more impactful. I look forward to seeing how they develop in the coming year.”
