A funding programme with £75,000 available to communities across Dyfed-Powys has been launched by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Dafydd Llywelyn is inviting applications from groups and organisations in Powys,Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, who would use the funds to help improve people’s lives.

The Commissioner’s Fund offers grants of up to £5,000 to charities, voluntary organisations and community groups so they can develop ideas that have a positive impact on the areas they work in.

Projects must reflect in some way the priorities highlighted in the 2017-21 Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Plan, which are: Keeping our communities safe, safeguarding the vulnerable, protecting our communities from serious threats, and connecting with communities.

A total of 21 groups and organisations made successful bids for funding in 2016. A wide range of schemes were supported, including £5,000 for the Carmarthenshire Water Safety Partnership, £3,700 for Pembroke Street Pastors, £5,000 for counselling for adult survivors of child sexual abuse, and £4,850 for garden tidy-ups through Age Cymru Sir Gar.

External funding manager Jessica Williams said: “We are pleased to be able to offer this funding to groups and organisations across Dyfed-Powys again this year. Last year we supported 21 diverse projects, all of which will improve the lives of people throughout the force area.

“We look forward to reading the applications and finding out the difference this funding could make to the people we serve. We are asking applicants to describe the outcomes they expect their projects to achieve, and how these relate to the priorities of the Police and Crime Plan.”

The funding is available to public sector, private sector,voluntary or community organisations and we encourage organisations to work together.

There is a maximum application threshold of £5,000 andapplications higher than this will not be accepted. The programme is open from April 13, 2017 with a closing date of June 2, 2017.
