Mental Health and Policing Fund

Mental Health and Policing Fund
One of the PCC’s priorities is making sure that people with mental health issues who come into contact with the police have access to the right support. These may be victims, witnesses, or offenders and could range from being in crisis to a missing person or needing to access the right support mechanisms within their communities.

Due to this, funding has been allocated within the commissioning budget to enable the PCC to support schemes and or projects which directly relate to this priority. The funding allocated to mental health is divided between:
  • Projects in existence and those which have been developed since the PCC entered office in May 2016
  • New and innovative projects to be developed
However, both elements will be subject to the same monitoring and governance processes.

The amount currently available for new services is £150,000.

Funding will not be used to support mental health services that are the responsibility of health providers nor to support those services where statutory funding has been withdrawn or reduced.
