Hull Crime Reduction Fund
The Hull Crime Reduction Fund has been established by the Safer Hull Partnership (the Hull Community Safety Partnership), with funding provided by the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner and aims to provide grants to support various groups and community projects whose aims are to enhance community engagement, reduce crime and improve the lives of those living in Hull.
The aim of the Community Grant is to support those initiatives and projects that are able to demonstrate how they can support the delivery of the Safer Hull Partnership strategic aims, outcomes and priorities.
The Safer Hull Partnership priorites are to:
1) support victim’s, vulnerable people and communities by building community resilience;
2) addressing anti-social behaviour and domestic abuse through challenging violent behaviour;
3) reducing offending and re-offending; and
4) tackling substance misuse.
