Mrs Bourne said: “Since launching the Safer in Sussex funding scheme in December, 2013, I have allocated nearly £1.5million from the Community Safety Fund to support a wide range of crime reduction and community safety initiatives.

To qualify, projects should demonstrate how they will increase or promote community safety within the local community and have a positive long-term impact.

They should also be able to offer evidence to support the need for the project and show how it helps to prevent offending and reduce re-offending. The window for applications is open until 11 December. For more information and to apply, visit: www.sussex-pcc.gov.uk/get-involved/apply-for-funding
