The Safer Communities Fund has been launched to help voluntary, community groups, charities and partners make their communities safer and feel safer. Grants will be awarded in line with the priorities set out in the Police and Crime plan. To find out more about the plan, its priorities and how they were decided please click here.
The Safer Communities Fund is financed from monies recovered by West Yorkshire Police under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA). The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 lets us confiscate or recover the proceeds of crime from a criminal. Find out more about the Proceeds of Crime Act here.
