The fund aims to support community, voluntary or third sector organisations including Parish Councils with crime prevention projects in Cheshire. This could include, but is not limited to, projects that support victims, protect vulnerable people, tackle anti-social behaviour or drug issues, improve road safety or promote a safe night-time economy.

Applicant groups should be working with their local policing team to address local priorities.

  • Have the correct governing documents in place in order to manage the grant effectively.
  • Have two unrelated cheque signatories and for community interest companies, two unrelated directors.

  • That clearly understand the needs of the local community and how the grant will make a real difference.
  • That address the local policing priorities and reduce crime.
  • Who are able to work positively with wider community groups to share resources and create sustainable change.
