To be eligible for a grant (maximum £1,500) your project should:
Allow young people to tackle the problems of their community themselves
Have sufficient adult and professional support
Concentrate on issues of crime prevention and community safety
Promote young people as valued members of a community which they are taking a positive role in
Include as many sections of the community as possible
Empower young people with confidence and a sense of achievement
Grants are available to groups who want to be part of the solution rather than the problem. Crimebeat ensures that such groups are responsibly led and that the projects are suitably supervised and co-ordinated.
