The Police, Crime & Victims’ Commissioner (PCVC), in partnership with County Durham Community Foundation (CDCF), is making available a grants fund to support the community and voluntary sector of County Durham and Darlington. The fund will support projects and initiatives that help keep communities safe and contribute towards inspiring public confidence. The fund is not aimed at organisations that are already funded directly from core commissioned, statutory policing and community safety activities, but will support projects and initiatives that are additional and work at a local community level. 

The key themes that the fund is looking to support include projects and activities that: 

• Support those affected by crime to cope with the immediate aftermath and assist with their long-term recovery from the experience; 

• Contribute to a reduction in offending and re-offending; and 

• Help keep communities safe. 

Successful applicants will be required to submit monitoring forms to show how funding has been used to the benefit of communities and take part in any promotional and/or publicity material. 

Please note that you if you received a grant in 2019 and wish to reapply, you will need to have submitted an end-of-grant report before you submit a new application to the Fund. Please contact us for details. 

All enquiries and applications must be directed through CDCF.
