The Commissioner’s Fund is provided by Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, Christopher Salmon, to help improve the lives of the people across the region. The scheme is funded by the proceeds of crime awarded to the police and from the sale of unclaimed found property.
A total of £75,000 is available in Round Three, with grants of up to £5,000 available to charities, voluntary organisations and community groups to develop ideas that have a positive impact on the area they serve. Grants can be used for essentials such as educational toys, sports gear, publicity material, training, transport costs, venue hire, volunteer expenses or running costs.
Community projects are nominated by frontline police officers and Dyfed-Powys Police staff, and approved by a chief inspector who assesses applications against criteria such as the numbers who will benefit. Nominations are not accepted from the public or directly from organisations looking for funding.
All projects should in some way reflect the 2013-18 Police and Crime Plan for Dyfed-Powys.
The deadline for applications is 22 October 2014.
