Community safety – non-commissioned services

In addition to working in partnership with the Community Safety Partnerships, Julia has also identified funding to support community safety issues, through a mix of commissioned and non-commissioned services.

The Community Safety Services Fund

The Community Safety Services Fund is available to any local community group or organisation in North Yorkshire or City of York; however the proposed project must benefit North Yorkshire communities directly and be supported by the appropriate Community Safety Partnership (Safer York Partnership or North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership).

A panel that includes representatives from each Community Safety Partnership reviews all applications.

The maximum amount available for each application to this fund is £20,000.

Projects/initiatives must support a pro-active, sustainable, outcomes focused approach to diversion and early intervention, addressing (re)-offending , (re)-victimisation and Community Safety priorities, using one of the following service delivery models:

  • Community Based Volunteer Services
  • Targeted Prevention and Early Intervention Services (Diversionary / Positive Activities)
  • Targeted Early Intervention Emotional Health projects
