Deadline extended to apply for Trafford's Community Safety Grants

With many excellent projects already bidding for a share of Trafford Council’s £20,000 Community Safety Grants funding, the Council is extending the time individuals and local community groups have to submit their bid. Applicants now have until midday on Friday, 28 April 2017 to apply.

The money will support community projects which focus on helping tackle community safety issues. Projects must show how they will benefit local communities by helping tackle issues such as youth nuisance and misuse of green spaces.

Corporate Director of Transformation and Resources, Joanne Hyde, said: “We know that many local organisations and individuals work tirelessly throughout the year to improve their local communities. Through these grants we are able to support many of the fantastic, innovative projects brought forward to help tackle specific local safety issues which will reinforce Trafford as a safe, attractive place to live and visit.”

Applying is easy, it just needs a short application form completing, giving an outline of the project idea, why it is needed and the difference it would make to the local community. Successful applicants will be notified during May 2017.

Anyone who thinks they have a great community safety project idea that should be considered can contact the Partnerships and Communities Team at Trafford Council on 0161 912 3422 or log on to
