Calderdale’s Community Safety Partnership:
Expression of Interest for Funding to Delivery Services Tackling Violent Crime

Calderdale’s Community Safety Partnership (CSP) has been allocated funding at a borough level following the successful award from the Home Office to the West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU). The awarded funding for 2022/23 to the VRU from the Home Office is to support a programme of interventions across West Yorkshire to contribute towards the following:

  1. A reduction in hospital admissions for assaults with a knife or sharp object and especially among those victims aged under 25.
  2. A reduction in knife-enabled serious violence and especially amongst those victims aged under 25, and 
  3. A reduction in all non-domestic homicides and especially amongst those victims aged under 25 involving knifes.

Calderdale CSP has been allocated funds from the VRU for the purpose of delivering a local programme of interventions in quarters 3 and 4 (September 2022– March 2023), and in doing so contribute to the above listed outcomes.

Calderdale’s intervention programme for 2022/3 has been informed by a Violent Crime Needs Assessment as well as the CSP’s own Strategic Assessment. Calderdale CSP (with support from providers and partners) has successfully delivered VRU interventions for the last two years and has used the evidence provided by the evaluation of these programmes to formulate the following specification for this year’s (Q3 & Q4) intervention activity.

The following funding opportunities are available:

  • Outreach Provision (Inviting bids of up to £12,000)
  • Enriching Activities, 1:1 & Group Work Programmes (Inviting bids of up to £12,000)
  • Focused Deterrent (Teachable Moments) (Inviting bids of up to £30,000)

All officers will wear them as part of their uniforms including Police Community Support Officers and also officers in plain clothes.

The cameras will film pictures and record sound to help you and the police meaning that people may not need to go to court because information about what happened will be on video.
