“The next grant round of the fund opens for applications on 15th April and for the first time ever will have a split funding pot. Half of the money will be available to projects looking to either tackle drugs and alcohol misuse or work focusing on young people, with the other half open to applications looking to address any of the priorities in my Police and Crime Plan.
