HIGH SHERIFF INVITES APPLICATIONS

Grants of up to £1,000 are available from the High Sheriffs’ Fund, which is managed by Essex Community Foundation (ECF) and the money will be awarded to groups working to make their communities safer.

The High Sheriff’s Awards Scheme also gives recognition to individuals who have gone above and beyond to make their area a safer place to live and work.

Projects which have received grants previously include garden maintenance schemes for elderly residents to reduce incidence of burglary, anti-social behaviour reduction initiatives, women’s refuge organisations and neighbourhood watch schemes.

The deadline date for applications and nominations is 1 December.

High Sheriff of Essex, Lorna Rolfe said: “The annual High Sheriffs’ Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to recognise the valuable contribution that voluntary organisations make in keeping their local communities safe from crime. I urge organisations to recognise this opportunity and apply for funding so they can further bolster their efforts.”

An independent panel of judges, chaired by the High Sheriff and including past High Sheriffs, will review the applications and the awards will be presented by the High Sheriff at a ceremony in March 2017.
