We accept more than one application from the same organisation. However, you would need to show a link to preventing crime and a clear link to one or more of the Police and Crime Commissioner's priorities.
Yes, you can apply for funding under the ‘Older but not overlooked’ priority, as well as for any other priority.
- Initial internal examination of the bids by the Commissioning Team
- Additional questions if clarification is needed (throughout the process)
- Priority Lead feedback or other internal and external expert opinion

Yes, all applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by email.
Not necessarily. The projects that offer the best value for money and make a strong impact are always preferable, but it is about quality rather than quantity.
The Police and Crime Commissioner is an elected post which runs for a duration of 4 years. Therefore projects funded in the PCC's first term of office can be funded for maximum of 4 years. For subsequent years the number of years the applicant can apply for reduces annually, as we are only able to allocate funding until 2021.
Yes, we aim to inform every applicant about the reasoning behind an unsuccessful application.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the process, we are unable to accept applications after the deadline and would recommend applying when the process re-opens. In the meantime, please look at opportunities on the VCS Alliance website at www.glosvcsalliance.org.uk. It is also advantageous to seek match and in-kind funding as this will benefit your application to the Commissioner's Fund.
Unfortunately all successful applications will receive their funding in quarterly instalments from April, as this is the start of the new financial year. It is not possible to release funds prior to this time.
