The High Sheriff’s Initiative encourages the development of projects which bring people closer to their communities to create a more cohesive society. It seeks to help communities and people within Northamptonshire realise their potential, creating stronger and safer communities and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. The programme will make awards of up to £3000.
This year the Northamptonshire High Sheriff’s Initiative Fund's focus will be on tackling serious youth violence and your project proposal must cover one of the following themes:
Preventative: Projects working with vulnerable families and communities to reduce childhood adversity
Early intervention: Projects working with at risk or excluded children and young people
Intervention: Projects working with young people at risk of offending or re-offending in relation to violent crime
Northamptonshire Community Foundation will receive expressions of interest for 2019 during May and early June of this year. You will need to complete an expression of interest form. If your expression of interest is approved you will receive a face to face project visit in July by the High Sheriff and the panel.
The Programme will open for expressions of interest on 1 May and close at Midday on Monday 10 June. Please complete an expression of interest form which you can access here and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
