Home Office crime fighting funding


The Home Office has launched two new crime fighting funds as part of the government’s ambition to drive up community activism and build safer neighbourhoods. It is inviting applications for grant funding for a new £4 million programme – Choices. Choices is focused on preventing and reducing substance misuse and related offending amongst vulnerable groups of young people.

The  Community Action Against Crime: Innovation Fund will be launched in August. The fund will be worth £5million in 2011/12, with a further £5million for 2012/13. It will stimulate creative new approaches to tackling crime.  The fund will be used to encourage greater community activism, enabling communities to develop innovative approaches to tackling the local crime issues that matter to them.
