The Police & Crime Commissioner has set aside some funding for local community groups that help reduce or prevent crime in Sussex. The Community Safety Fund has supported many such projects over the past few years, to the benefit of local people and neighbourhoods.  The Community Safety Fund provides financial support (grant awards of up to £5,000) to local organisations and projects that aim to reduce crime and improve community safety. Applications for the Community Safety Fund will be accepted up to three times a year.




How to apply

The fund is not currently open for new applications, but this page will be updated with details of when we expect it to re-open in due course. 

In the meantime, this guidance and criteria document will help prospective applicants to consider whether they should apply. Please refer closely to this document when completing your application form. We also recommend that you read the full list of terms and conditions.
