Each year the Commissioner allocates 1% of the policing budget, c. £1 million to The Commissioner’s Fund. The money is used to fund projects and programmes that support the delivery of the Police and Crime Plan and its priorities.
The Commissioner’s Fund is open to a variety of applicants – public sector, voluntary sector, community groups. This is a competitive process with limited funds; therefore not all applications will be successful. Organisations who have previously been awarded funding are welcome to apply again, either to expand the existing project or with an alternative idea. Unfortunately, we are unable to reconsider previous funding requests in order to top up the funds the project did not receive in the past funding rounds.
- Projects must take place within Gloucestershire
- Projects must support the delivery of one or more of the six priorities
- Match funding is desirable
- Projects should bring organisations and people together to co-operate in tackling problems or promoting new ideas
- Projects must aim to become sustainable and not become dependent on PCC funding.
- Projects must be able to demonstrate evidence based outcomes.
