The Derry and Strabane Policing and Community Safety Partnership call for small project support is now open for applications for projects taking place between April 2020 and February 2021.
Local groups with an interest in community safety and increasing confidence in policing are encouraged to apply, and the Chair of the Derry and Strabane PCSP, Councillor Sandra Duffy, said the support was open to a wide range of projects.
“The public notice inviting applications has been advertised in the local press this week and a number of information events were held across the City and District,” she explained.
“Last year the PCSP provided over £220,000 of support to a range of local initiatives and projects aimed at reducing fear of crime, tackling anti-social behaviour and addressing issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, road safety and domestic and sexual violence. This year’s call has a similar budget and will support projects running during 2020/21.
“I would really encourage groups that are working to enhance community safety, reduce crime and increase confidence in policing to submit their application to the PCSP. It is important that all applications are submitted before the deadline as applications submitted after the date will not be considered.”
Applications can be submitted through www.dcsdcgrantaid.com The closing date for the receipt of applications is 3pm on Friday 7th February.
