Notes

All parts of the form must be completed. If they are not you will be unable to submit your application form.

The Joint Action Group (JAG) will require a brief report upon the completion of the project in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the initiative and to determine whether the stated outcome has been achieved. This report should be addressed to the Chair of the JAG.

Please note that the Partnership is unlikely to support further initiatives submitted by you if the stated outcome of another project for which you have been funded has not been met or a timely report has not been submitted.

If funding is granted for a project, and either no evaluation report has been submitted or the project was not undertaken, then a request for the money to be returned will be made.

All applicants will be kept updated on the progress of their application by the Assistant Community Safety Officer.

Process

The eligibility or your applications will be assessed by the Community Safety Team if it is considered to be eligible, it will go to the monthly Joint Action Group (JAG) for further discussion and decision.
