FEBRUARY saw South Yorkshire Police's Shaun Wright announce the 2013 Commissioner Grant Scheme, and the first round of funding has been allocated.

Applications were sought from non-profit voluntary and community organisations to apply for grants from £10,000 to £50,000 to help towards their projects.

Barnsley-based Phoenix, an organisation which provides a service for people with health issues and substance misuse, has been successful in its bid."

It was a very difficult task evaluating all the bids," said Mr Wright. "The funding was allocated in a way we believe to be fair and supports the organisations that make a real difference and make South Yorkshire a safer place."

Later rounds of funding will be available, and you are encouraged to apply. For more information, click here.

What load of codswallop, I didn't know the Police Force were a charity organisation. Who's money are they giving away, not their own I'll wager more like Tax-payers cash. Why dont the Police concentrate on preventing crime and catching criminals that's all we ask of them.??

All public sector bodies are good at wasting our money because they are oblivious to the plight of the country. A situation which they, themselves, have largely created. The current government are attempting to reduce public sector waste but they still have a long way to go. Like rainbow (above) I agree that South Yorkshire Police should concentrate on preventing crime and catching criminals. Sometimes these so-called public servants forget what they are employed to do.

Well said you two. These public sector types do not live in the real world.
