Community Fund

Home > Get Involved > Community Fund

The Community Fund supports voluntary and community groups that help to prevent crime and keep communities safe.

Money for the Community Fund, which is jointly managed by the PCC and the Chief Constable, is created from the proceeds from the sale of items seized from criminals that cannot be returned to their rightful owners.

The Fund is open for applications twice a year for projects that help to achieve the objectives of the PCC’s Police and Criminal Justice Plan.

This Fund is an opportunity for community and voluntary groups to get involved and assist both the PCC and Thames Valley Police in tackling and reducing crime.

Case Studies

We have put together a number of case studies, focused on successful applicants. You can view the case studies here:

Presentation Event

Successful applicants to each round of the Community Fund are invited to attend a presentation event, hosted by Matthew Barber (Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley) and Jason Hogg (Chief Constable, Thames Valley).

Alongside the PCC and Chief Constable, a number of previously successful applicants are invited to share a short presentation on how the Community Fund has supported them as well as High Sheriffs and Lord Lieutenants from across Thames Valley.

You can find out more about Community Fund presentation events on our dedicated webpage.
