North East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) Crime Reduction Fund 2020/21
The North East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) Crime Reduction Fund is now open again for 2020/21 applications.
The final round of funding is now open. Closing date is 26th February 2021.
However, being the final round of the year, the available funding is limited and therefore, whilst the maximum grant available is still £10,000, we are strongly encouraging and wanting to fund in this round smaller projects up to approximately £3,000 in value.
This scheme has been funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside (PCC) and is being managed by Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire (VANEL) on behalf of the North East Lincolnshire (NEL) Community Safety Partnership (CSP).
You can always contact Richard Wendel-Jones at VANEL to discuss the application process via firstname.lastname@example.org / 01472 361043.

The North East Lincolnshire (NEL) Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is one of four crime reduction partnerships covering the whole of the Humberside Policing area. The NEL CSP comprises representatives from statutory authorities with direct responsibility for reducing crime and disorder across our local communities, namely Humberside Police; North East Lincolnshire Council; Humberside Fire and Rescue Service; National Probation Service; Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company (local probation service); Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside; North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group; and other supporting partners including the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Alliance and Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire.
The NEL CSP is responsible for undertaking an annual survey of member organisations and local residents and producing a Joint Strategic Intelligence Assessment based on both information from the public in receipt of community safety services and statistical results gathered by community safety partners. This information together with ongoing partnership research and wider community safety partner consultation then informs the development of an annual partnership plan. The overarching outcome of the plan is to ensure people feel safe and are safe. Specific indicators were agreed to show progress towards achieving this outcome and voluntary and community groups are actively encouraged to contribute to this plan.
Each indicator has a specific task and finish group which includes community safety operational staff, service providers and representatives from voluntary and community groups who help to identify and resolve community safety problems. These groups focus on tactical approaches to crime prevention tackling challenging, using early intervention measures for emerging issues, and designing out crime to ensure community safety is continuously improving.
