New fund to tackle anti-social behaviour in Dorset
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset is delighted to launch a dedicated fund to help tackle Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).
The Operation Relentless Community Fund has been set up to help community groups and charities in Dorset take action and tackle ASB in their local area.
The new grant is open to organisations that want to put in place projects and initiatives that reduce ASB and increase public feeling of safety in areas disproportionately affected by ASB. Applications from £100 up to £5,000 are welcomed, the projects must address ASB and have a local focus.
Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner David Sidwick, said: “This is me making good on my promise to take action and help all of those people who have told me that they want to do something about anti-social behaviour in their community. Its time to make a real, long lasting difference to our communities and work together to make our county the safest in England and Wales.
“I want to enable and empower our communities to help in the fight against anti-social behaviour and the Op Relentless Community Fund is a very direct way of doing just that.”
