Jane Kennedy launches fund for crime-fighting community organisations

Merseyside / July 09

Today Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Jane Kennedy launches the Police Commissioner’s PPA Fund.

The Commissioner’s Fund will allow community organisations to apply for grants of up to £5,000 for activities which have an impact on community safety and crime reduction in areas of Merseyside.

Commissioner Kennedy stated ‘this is an opportunity for organisations who provide a wide range of excellent services for their communities, such as keeping young people safe and away from criminal activity, providing help and support for victims of crime and raising awareness of reporting crimes such as hate crime and domestic violence. £5,000 can make a difference for these groups who all work extremely hard in making Merseyside a safer place to live, work and visit.’

The fund will be managed by the Community Foundation for Merseyside on behalf of the Commissioner. You can apply by contacting the Community Foundation via;-
