I am responsible for commissioning services other than policing to deliver my Police and Crime Plan and have two funds that I use for this purpose.
Community Safety Fund: This is money I allocate to support the delivery of my Police and Crime Plan objectives. The fund supports collaborative arrangements with local authorities, third sector providers and Wiltshire Police.
Victims Fund: This is a specific allocation by the Ministry of Justice for Victim Services and Restorative Justice services.
Details can be found below of the grants made from these two funds.
