Birmingham fund to tackle gangs and violence

Birmingham fund to tackle gangs and violence

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is to spend £250,000 ensuring Birmingham children don’t get involved in gangs and violence.

David Jamieson is inviting all community and voluntary sector organisations in the city to bid for a share of the money which must be spent keeping young people away from crime.

The cash is part of the PCC’s £2 million investment over two years which was announced last December.

The Commissioner will pay voluntary and community groups to provide activities for children in areas with high levels of crime. These might include sporting activities, education or training. David Jamieson is also looking for organisations to support children who are at risk of exclusion or are beginning to take part in criminal activity.

The maximum amount that can be applied for is £30,000.

The deadline for applications is 17 December 2018 at 5pm
