Neighbourhood Watch Groups (existing, new groups, or potential new groups) are likely to require funding for room hire, stationery, display equipment, and various activities in order to boost their efforts in the prevention of crime in their locality.
Wherever possible we encourage all groups to raise funds locally since this tends to bind a community together and promotes interest across the community. There are of course numerous conventional fund-raising opportunities such as street market stalls, auctions, and prize draws etc.
Other funding sources that might be considered include:-
Parish councils in Cambridgeshire have used these powers in the past for NHW Scheme grants and for specific NW projects such as replacing barriers in passageways to prevent climbing; CCTV funding, security lighting, etc.
In the event that the above sources do not provide required funds, the Cambridgeshire NW Executive Committee (CNWEC) is happy to consider applications for assistance. Applicants should forward their submissions, preferably by email [using the Word version of the form Grant Application (Jan 2021) to the Honorary Treasurer of CNHWA.
The form is intended to be self-explanatory. You may send your applications attached to your email to the Hon Treasurer CNHWA or to seek any additional advice and information, or alternatively you can discuss the matter with your District NW Rep, or perhaps send us a Contact Us message.
