Community Grants

The Police and Crime Commissioner believes that the most effective way to create a safer Northamptonshire is by communities helping themselves and each other through initiatives that reduce and prevent crime and anti-social behaviour in the county.

The Office of Police and Crime Commission has partnered with Northamptonshire Community Foundation (NCF) to create the Making Northamptonshire Safer Communities Fund and Foundation – which the PCC has provided £100,000-worth of funding to across 2017.

NCF is the county’s largest independent grant giving organisation and provides much needed and often life changing grants to some of the county’s most vulnerable and in need people. Since its inception in 2001, the Foundation has distributed £8.8 million to over 2,500 projects.

The Foundation will distribute grants on behalf of the Police and Crime Commission to help deliver a safer county.
