Community safety – non-commissioned services

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.

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

Community Safety District Level Funding

From April 2022 to March 2023, the Commissioner has committed to providing community safety services funding through Safer York and the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) to enable responsible authorities to react to emerging local community safety needs and demands for target hardening services, respond to emerging local community safety concerns or immediate crime and ASB reduction requirements and conduct planned targeted communications and social marketing interventions that link to local or strategic priorities.

The total funding available to the CSPs will be split by geographic area relative to the need and demand for community safety services, based on NYP data in relation to:

  • Reported incidents of crime (volume);
  • Reported incidents of anti-social behaviour (ASB volume);
  • Reported incidents of public safety and welfare (PSW volume); Victims of crime; and
  • Aggrieved / people reporting ASB or PSW.

Budget for Districts 2022/23: £38,199.40

Community Safety Strategic Level Funding

Budget for Strategic Partnerships to deliver planned, targeted, activities and interventions, including communications and social marketing, that align to CSP strategic priorities
