Community groups in Welshpool and throughout Montgomeryshire are being invited to apply for funding from a new charity promoting safer communities.

Safer Dyfed Powys Diogel is a charity set up by the region's Police and Crime Commissioner, Aled Llywelyn.

It followed a cycling tour of the police force area earlier this month in which the Commissioner and police officers cycled to every police station to raise cash for and awareness of the charity.

"The charity is pleased to announce that the process for applications for funding from Safer Dyfed-Powys Diogel is now open," said a statement from the charity.
"It will run for six weeks, closing on June 29 2018. Applications must align with Safer Dyfed-Powys Diogel’s objectives, namely promoting crime prevention and community safety advice, while reducing the fear of crime through provision of education and information on community safety.

"Each community group and/or charity within the Dyfed-Powys area can apply for a maximum of £1,000, and projects must be linked to young people aged 25 years and under and must support one or more of the principles in the Police and Crime Plan."

Full details can be found on the Police Commissioners website:

"We encourage local community groups and charities to read the guidance form before applying; applications that do not support the charity’s objectives and do not align with the Police and Crime Plan will not be considered," added the statement.
