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

Community Safety Serious Violence Fund

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, (The Commissioner) is committed to a commissioning approach to Community Safety and Serious Violence funding, with the aim of investing in evidence-based initiatives at a local level, which aim to reduce serious violence and achieve positive outcomes for individuals and communities.

Projects/initiatives must support a pro-active, sustainable, outcomes focused approach to prevention, early intervention and diversion, from Anti-Social Behaviour and Crime, including Serious Violence, that addresses (re)-offending , (re)-victimisation and Community Safety / Serious Violence priorities.

Any community group, organisation, or individual linked to an organisation can apply for this funding, however the proposed project/initiative:

  • must benefit North Yorkshire / York communities directly;
  • explain how the project adds value;
  • evidence how the project links to local / strategic Community Safety priorities and / or the Serious Violence Duty priorities;
  • be fully supported by the appropriate Community Safety Partnership; (Safer York Partnership [SYP] or North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership [NYCSP]), specific to where the project/initiative will be delivered.
  • The maximum amount available for each application to this fund is £30,000.00
