Open Grant Schemes
Safer Roads Fund (LPCAF)
“I am committed to improving road safety, which is why I am pleased to be opening the new ‘Safer Roads’ fund to address this very important issue. Too many people are dying or being seriously injured on our roads, so it is right that we look for more ways to prevent this together. Whilst I acknowledge the extensive work West Mercia Police do around enforcement and raising awareness to change driver attitude, road safety will continue to be a high priority for me and I will continue to ensure there are ways for everyone to work together to keep road users safe.” PCC John Campion
This fund is open from 1st November 2018 to 31st March 2020. The Community Ambassadors and Local Superintendents have a small amount of grant funding for community projects. To find out more please contact your local ambassador or read the policy and procedure and complete the application form.
