The Commissioner’s Vulnerability Fund

20 November 2020

The recently launched 'Vulnerability Fund' has been set up by Derbyshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa. The focus of the PCC's Vulnerability Fund is on policing and crime, community safety and helping to create safer and stronger communities. Applications should consider alignment to the Police and Crime Plan priorities and broader community safety objectives in local communities. Consideration may be given to contributing to broader health and social care programmes but only where match funding is already agreed from other partners and there are linked crime and policing-related outcomes which make individuals or communities safer and stronger.

The Commissioner will be looking for projects:

  • which help individuals to live safely and without fear of crime in their homes;
  • which empower the local community to tackle problems in their neighbourhood areas;
  • are organised by (and involving) community/neighbourhood groups;
  • can demonstrate that they can make a difference to local communities;
  • that take a new and sustainable approach to tackling long term problems;
  • that foster good relations between partner agencies and communities and do not work in isolation

Micro-grants from £50 to £1,000 can now be applied for from South Derbyshire CVS.
