The ‘Your Community, Your Choice’ initiative, supported by the North Wales Police and Community Trust (PACT) and North Wales Police celebrates a decade of funding projects in 2023 and to celebrate this milestone, the funding available to apply for has doubled to £120,000.
Since its inception, Your Community, Your Choice has sponsored grass-roots projects that bring people and organisations together, ultimately creating a safer environment for all.
Over the past ten years, a total of £428,792 has been awarded to 149 projects working to support the priorities in the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.
The funding available to winning projects for the next round of the initiative is increasing to a total of £120,000, shared across 33 projects.
· Four projects in each of the 5 North Wales counties will each receive £2,500
· Two projects in each of the 5 North Wales counties will receive £5,000
· Three pan-North Wales projects will each receive £10,000
The past few years have not been easy for community organisations due to the pandemic and now the cost of living crisis. I am therefore keen to ensure that they do not miss out on this fantastic opportunity.
We are extremely fortunate to have some excellent projects doing admirable work in our communities. This funding could benefit them enormously and I encourage them to apply.”
The application window for this year’s initiative will open on January 9th 2023 and closes on February 3rd 2023.
