Description

 

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (the “Authority”), acting through the Neighbourhood Crime Unit, intends to make an amount up to £20,000,000 of grant funding (“Funding”) available. Approximately £1.75M of the funding will be reserved for support to successful areas, central evaluation and other activity to support delivery of the fund, with the remaining £18.25M available to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) within England and Wales, who may in turn delegate to a Local Authority within their area to lead and submit a bid. This funding will be granted during 2021-22 financial year and all allocations must be spent by 31 March 2022. The Funding is to be awarded through a fair, open and transparent competition by means of a Call for Proposals and will support PCCs to invest in well evidenced interventions, with the aim of reducing acquisitive crime in areas that are persistently and disproportionately impacted (the “Project”).

Outcomes

PCCs are asked to work with partners, to design and deliver local crime prevention plans with the outcome of reducing acquisitive crimes through situational prevention. The objectives of the fund are to:
• Reduce acquisitive crime in areas that receive funding – making residents safer and removing demand from the system to enable police to focus on more complex crimes.
• Continue to build evidence about the impact of targeted investment in situational prevention in high crime areas to strengthen the case for future investment, both at a local and national level.
• Grow local capability to undertake data driven problem solving and capture evidence and practical learning about how best to implement situational interventions to prevent crime.

PCCs or delegated Local Authorities can submit up to three prioritised applications, one in each of the primary/secondary/tertiary competitions, each for a defined local area within your force area that is disproportionately affected by acquisitive crime, with up to £432,000 grant funding being available per bid. Further information on the scheme is available via the online portal, with details of how to register and then linked to the event outlined below.

Bidders should note there are 3 separate competitions and you will be linked to all 3 competitions. It is important that Bidders treat each bid separately and respond to every question (acknowledging it is likely Bidders will be repeating the same response/confirmation/declaration in each of the 3 competitions.)

The deadline for all 3 bids is 13:00 on Thursday 25 March 2021
