Latest round of funding available NOW!
North Yorkshire Police is calling on local community and voluntary groups, like the Scouts, to apply for funding for initiatives which benefit the region and its residents, particularly those which could have a positive impact on reducing crime and disorder.
Monies from the North Yorkshire Police Property Fund are generated from the auction of property which has either been seized or confiscated as part of criminal investigations and which, despite its best efforts, the Force has been unable to return to its rightful owners.
Previous successful project applications include conservation experiences for young people, the provision of multi-cultural pre-school learning resources and riding experiences for the disabled.
North Yorkshire Police Chief Constable, Dave Jones, said: “The auction of this property and the resulting monies raised, offers us the opportunity to give those organisations that carry out worthwhile work in our region that little bit of extra support to run initiatives which benefit our whole community. I welcome applications from our valued community groups and look forward to seeing the positive differences the Fund can make to our region and its residents.”
Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, added: “It is often local people with good ideas who can make the biggest difference in their community, so if you know of a good project that needs a boost, or have an idea yourself, make sure you make the most of the Police Property Fund.”
