Commissioner fund targets diversity (4 Aug 2014)
Promoting diversity in West Yorkshire is the theme behind the latest round of the Safer Communities Fund.
A third phase of grants has now officially opened, with £155,000 available for local groups and organisations.
The money has been taken from criminals under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Applications of up to £7,500 can be submitted and will be considered by an Independent Advisory Board.
West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson said:
"When I have visited local communities, people have told me that promoting diversity and tackling hate related crime are among their key priorities.
"This is reflected in my refreshed Police and Crime Plan and is the reason why I have selected it as the theme for this latest bidding round.
"Only last weekend, I attended the Gay Pride event in Leeds where I undertook street surveys and spoke to people on a one to one basis. It was clear that funding levels for local groups was an area of particular interest.
"Every applicant must show how they work to encourage diversity within their neighbourhood, ensuring people are safe and feel safe.
"The closing date for submissions for this round of the Safer Communities Fund is 5th September 2014.
"Already dozens of local groups and organisations have received money from the fund since it was launched in February, totalling £412,000.
"This is making a tangible difference to people's lives and I intend to ensure the focus remains upon issues which mean the most to our communities.
"There has been unprecedented interest throughout the campaign and I want to see more groups and organisations realise these potential benefits."
