High Sheriffs’ Fund
Groups with an income of less than £200,000 can apply for grants of up to £5,000 (average grant circa £1,500). The broad themes are crime reduction and creating a safer society. Funds can be used for young people (diversionary activities, projects that raise aspirations or reduce isolation), intergenerational activities (reduce fear of crime, promote community cohesion), older people (resident groups, clubs or societies).
Closing dates are on 1 March and 1st September each year.
