Violence Reduction Fund

Violence Reduction Fund
The PCC created his Violence Reduction Challenge in 2018 to look at the nature of violent crime in Kent, and to agree a partnership approach to tackling the underlying causes. The year-long study was partly in response to the Government's own Serious Violence Strategy.

One of the recommendations, announced in March 2019, was for the PCC to set aside a portion of his annual commissioning budget to create a Violence Reduction Fund (VRF). This fund will support activities such as, awareness campaigns, prevention initiatives, rehabilitation projects, and diversionary activities. Ultimately, the PCC wants to play a part in helping protect some of our most vulnerable people from the most violent.

The VRF is a three-year fund, which is open to statutory organisations, community and voluntary groups, charities and social enterprises to bid for a maximum of £35,000 per year, for three years. The provision of funding will be subject to the submission of satisfactory monitoring and adherence to the VRF grant conditions.
