Working Towards A Safer Kent
Tel: 01622 653208
Safer Kent helps prevent crime and anti-social behaviour. We are dedicated to creating a better environment for everyone in Kent.
The Kent People's Trust works hard to make Kent a safer place by providing much needed support for a wide range of youth centred local crime prevention and community safety projects across Kent and Medway.
• The advancement of education for the public benefit in all matters relating to youth crime prevention, community safety, alcohol, drug and other solvent abuse affecting crime in the community.
• To support youth projects concerned with matters of community safety, community crime prevention and reduction.
Only projects supporting people living, working or visiting Kent and Medway can be considered.
. Education programmes in relation to these issues may also be supported.
Health, Sport, Art or General Education projects not related to crime prevention will not be supported. Please note that it is not sufficient to state that the provision of an activity will prevent the people involved from committing crime as this could apply to any lawful activity.
Grants typically range from £500 - £2,500. Please complete an application form and submit before the application deadline. In exceptional circumstances the Board may consider applications over these amounts. You may apply more than once a year but not to the same Trustees meeting.
We also run a small grants programme with grants from £50 to £500.
In some cases the Kent People’s Trust can help kick-start your crime prevention project with an interest free loan up to £25,000. Our most successful collaborations have been the Safer Shopping Partnerships and the Street Pastors & Community Passtors groups, which the Kent People’s Trust helped to establish, and which are now a best practice model for town centre management.
