The Home Office has launched a second round of the Anti-Knife Crime Community Fund with £1 million available for projects taking place in 2018/19.
The fund has been set up to support community projects which reduce knife crime and have a positive impact on young people at risk of carrying a knife and committing crime.
Voluntary and community sector groups can apply for grants of up to £30,000. Applications for greater funding will be considered for projects with collaboration between partners.
The funding is for projects that demonstrate the following:
- Delivery of outcomes to stop knife crimes
- A proven track record of delivering local interventions
- Proven track record of ability to work with children and young people
- Proven track record of ability to work in partnership with other organisations and services
- Evidence of value for money
