PCC Seccombe offering grants to tackle drug and alcohol problems

Correspondent 28th Feb, 2018 Updated: 28th Feb, 2018

PROJECTS which deliver targeted drugs and alcohol interventions for adults and young people are being invited to bid for a slice of funding by Warwickshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Philip Seccombe.

The second phase of his Commissioner’s Grants Scheme aims to support schemes which work with people with drug and alcohol addictions within the criminal justice arena, as well as schemes which raise young people’s awareness of the consequences of substance misuse, helping to reduce their risk of entering the criminal justice system.

Up to £245,000 is being made available in two tranches, with up to £85,000 available for children’s and young people’s services and up to £160,000 for services aimed at adults.

Successful applications will demonstrate how they can provide Warwickshire residents with services which will help:-

· put victims and survivors first;

· ensure efficient and effective policing;

· protect people from harm;

· prevent and reduce crime.

Grants are available to both established and new service providers from the community, voluntary, third sector and statutory organisations for initiatives either at a county-wide level or targeted at one or more of the local authority areas within Warwickshire.

The deadline for applications for drugs and alcohol interventions initiatives is noon on Friday, March 9, 2018 (children’s and young people’s services) and noon on Friday, March 23, 2018 (adult services).
