Hertfordshire Community Projects Benefit from Commissioners Fund
Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd has launched a new community fund in partnership with Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF).

The Fund makes available £120,000 that has been generated through offender confiscations under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA). It will be used to help local organisations and community groups to deliver projects and services that help to reduce crime and make Hertfordshire a safer place to live.

Small grants (up to £5,000) will be provided upon successful applications and can cover a range of activities, including but not limited to practical work, research projects, equipment and materials, and awareness raising or training.

Police and Crime Commissioner, David Lloyd said: “Keeping people safe is everybody’s business. The aim of this fund is to support communities in coming together to generate ideas and implement projects that contribute to delivering my Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan (2017-2022) for Hertfordshire. I am keen to work together with a range of organisations from our community and district partners to deliver an even safer county.”

Jonathan Aves, Foundation Director for Hertfordshire Community Foundation said: “We all want to feel safe and secure in our homes. Our research project, Hertfordshire Matters found that residents rate Hertfordshire very highly when it comes to feeling safe. But there is always more to do. We are very pleased to be involved in this fund which will further contribute to improving our county at a local community level.”
