The Commissioner has responsibility for a number of important grants and funds that work to improve community safety on Merseyside.

Community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises are invited to bid for a slice of these funds to help make Merseyside an even better place to work, live and visit.

We will also use this page to publicise external funding opportunity that our community safety partners may be eligible to apply for and which would help to cut crime and provide support for victims.
