Funding Pots

  • Victim Fund

  • Community Safety Fund

  • Reducing Reoffending Fund

  • In October 2014 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) in England and Wales took responsibility for the commissioning of support services for victims and witnesses of crime. In Surrey, this funding allocated to two areas of delivery:

     

    1. Victim referral, assessment and local support service

     

    The Police & Crime Commissioners for Surrey, Sussex and Thames Valley have worked together to commission a single support service for all three police areas. Victims of crime are referred to this service to assess their needs and support them to cope and recover from their experiences.

     

    2. Specialist Support Services

     

    The Police and Crime Commissioner is also responsible for commissioning local specialist services that meet the specific needs of the people of Surrey, including Domestic Abuse Outreach, refuges and Independent Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisors. It is from this pot of money that local organisations can apply for funding.

     

    Please read the Victim Fund Criteria before applying for funding. Applications that do not meet the criteria for funding will not be successful.

  • The Community Safety Fund (CSF) gives the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) the ability to commission services that improve community safety in our neighbourhoods, tackle drug use and crime, and reduce re-offending. With this fund, the PCC is able to have greater control over how he uses his resources to fund projects across the county, allowing local people to help keep our neighbourhoods safe.

     

    Whilst some of this money goes towards in-house projects the PCC also allows organisations across the county to bid for funding to support local projects and initiatives.

     

    If you have a project that you think meets one of the PCC’s priorities, and you think it would benefit from support and funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, we’d like to hear from you.

  • Reoffending costs the UK taxpayer billions every year, damaging communities, creating victims and producing a significant drain on policing and a broad spectrum of other public services. Reducing reoffending is an important component with the Police and Crime Commissioners Police and Crime Plan 2016 – 2020 which is why the Commissioner has created a new Policy and Commissioning Lead for Criminal Justice role and ring-fenced funding of £250,000 aimed at reducing reoffending in Surrey.

     

    Whilst punishment is an important way of dealing with crime this alone is often not enough to prevent people from reoffending. This is particularly true for those who have multiple needs such as a substance misuse, mental health, homelessness or debt problem. Prison sentences are not succeeding in turning the majority of offenders away from further criminal behaviour. This is especially the case for those serving short sentences of 12 months or less where the reoffending rate is around 59%.

     

    If you have a project that you think meets one of the PCC’s priorities, and you think it would benefit from support and funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, we’d like to hear from you.
