Reduce Knife Crime
The Home Office has just launched a new Community Fund to support community projects which reduce knife crime and have a positive impact on young people at risk of carrying a knife and committing crime.
Voluntary and community sector groups can apply for grants of up to £200,000, or more if they are working with partners, as long as they can spend the funds by 31 March 2018.
The funding is for projects that demonstrate the following:
- Delivery of outcomes to stop knife crimes.
- A proven track record of delivering local interventions.
- Their ability to work with children and young people.
- Value for money.
- How they will work in partnership with other projects and services already being delivered in the local area.
The deadline for bids is 31 October 2017.
