Community Safety Services

Violence Reduction Unit Grant

Reducing violent crime is a priority for the Community Safety Partnership.

We want to work with partner organisations addressing the route causes that may lead to violence. Grants of up to £7,500 are now available to groups working with young people to help achieve this.

Projects must be able to support the following priorities:

  • Domestic violence and abuse and healthy relationships
  • Youth diversionary offers, including detached youth provision
  • Improving the Emotional Wellbeing and resilience of young people
  • Raising aspirations of young people.

The funding is available for initiatives that will be delivered before 31 March 2022. Priority will be given to organisations already working with this cohort.
