policeGood causes in the West Midlands can apply for funding to tackle crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in their communities.

West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson is offering one-off grants of up to £2,000 from his Stronger Communities Fund.

As well as tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, the aim of the grants is to strengthen relationships with the police and empower residents.

The fund will open to applications on September 5 and decisions on which schemes have been successful will be made in October by the Commissioner.

The Stronger Communities Fund replaces the Community Initiatives Fund.

To be successful, projects need to fulfil at least one of the following: improving community safety; responding to a community need; promoting partnership working; building stronger communities; engaging or empowering young people; supporting victims of crime.
