The Police and Crime Commissioner makes money available to support communities in the West Midlands who want to make their area safer.

The money, which comes from cash that police have seized from criminals under the Proceeds of Crime Act, will be allocated to groups that want to invest in their neighbourhoods.

Up to £5,000 will be given to each group. The scheme is known as the Helping Communities Fund (HCF).

Its purpose is to support locally based projects, which aim to make a positive difference and which make the West Midlands a safer place to live, learn or work. 

Applications for the Commissioner’s Helping Communities Fund 2024/25 are expected to reopen again shortly.
