Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Fund
This fund has been set up by Police and Crime Commissioner Darryl Preston using the proceeds of criminal activity. It’s aims are to ensure young people living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are deterred from getting involved in crime by:
- having safe spaces to gather and activities available which help them develop and become resilient adults;
- being given opportunities to use their spare time constructively through volunteer schemes which help their community;
- being listened to and having the chance to help shape local services and projects in their community which prevent those at risk from getting involved in crime.
Voluntary and community organisations based in the county who are working with young people aged between 5 and 18, or up to 25 years old for those with Special Educational Needs or disabilities are invited to bid for up to £3,500.
Bids will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Applications will need to show how they can help the Commissioner achieve the above aims.
Details of successful bids that were awarded in 2021/22 can be found below.
The Application Guidance and Application Form are available below. If you have any questions or simply want to discuss a potential application please contact us.
