Bid for up to £5k for your community project

Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd has opened the next round of funding through his Active Citizens Fund and local groups are being urged to apply.

Lloyd has £200,000 to spend with community groups who are working to reduce crime or anti-social behaviour in their local area.

In the last round of funding, some of the 20 local winners include MedaiCityUK-based Rio Ferninard Foundation, who took home over £27,000 to run its youth leadership projects; Salford Action for Autism scored £1,000 to support parents of children with autism, Salford CAB were awarded £5,000 to help train its volunteer advice workers and to recruit 10 extra domestic violence ‘champions’.

More: 77k share of community cash for Salford groups
