The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for
Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson, is seeking applications for his new
Community Action Fund. The fund launched by the PCC at the end of June
has been created to benefit local communities with £40,000 earmarked for this
year to share among the chosen projects.
The Commissioner is looking to boost initiatives which will help him to meet the key priorities in his Police and Crime Plan through projects which demonstrate either of the following:
The Commissioner shares the view of the founder of modern policing, Sir Robert Peel, that "the police are the public and the public are the police". In other words, the public and the police have a shared responsibility to look after our communities. Mr Macpherson is delighted to be able to support the communities of Wiltshire and Swindon with this new fund to help keep themselves safe.
The Commissioner is looking to support projects that will help him meet the objectives in his Police and Crime Plan and would like to remind community groups, voluntary sector organisations and town and parish councils that the PCC Community Action Fund is open for applications.
Applications can be made through the PCC’s website (www.wiltshire-pcc.gov.uk). The closing date is Friday 11th August 2017.
It would be much appreciated if you could please pass this email on to your local community groups and share this information with them.
