Funding: Serious Violence Prevention Project (SVPP) Community Fund


Police and Crime Commissioners in Wales are funding programmes that explore youth work approaches to early intervention and prevention from June 2019 to March 2020. The Commissioners are looking to fund projects mainly working with 11-18 year olds.

The Fund aims to provide support for early intervention and prevention programmes that:

  • Deliver services to support and prevent young people from getting involved in crime by supporting positive activities
  • Deliver positive outcomes for young people, focused on addressing risk factors linked to serious violence
  • Build on and develop our understanding of what works in practice for tackling these risk factors
  • Drive improved local, multi-agency partnership working; and most crucially, reduce the levels of serious violence and crime.

Closing date: 17 May 2019
