Grants are available to public, private and third sector groups for innovative projects that pilot new ways of working with at-risk groups, in order to reduce offending and re-offending and address the issues of domestic and sexual violence in Cumbria.
The Innovation Fund supports at-risk groups and aims to reduce re-offending by providing wider public, private and third sector partners with the opportunity to work with the PCC.
The fund addresses a number of key areas:
Alcohol related crime.
Grants of between £10,000 and £100,000 are available.
Applications are awarded annually; however, multi-year funding may be considered up to three years.
Match-funding is not essential but preferred. This can include in-kind volunteering time, donations and own cash contributions.
Local voluntary and community groups, third sector organisations, and charitable public and private sector organisations can apply.
Priority will be given to groups that engage volunteers, work with other partners and aim to be self‐financing and sustainable beyond the short term.
Groups must demonstrate that their idea is new to Cumbria, or is a collaborative partnership involving one or more organisations.
Open to applications at any time.
There is a two-stage application process which is expected to last between two and four months:
Initial submission will be reviewed by officers of the OPCC.
Meeting with the panel to talk through the project.
Guidance notes and an application pack can be downloaded from the PCC's website.
