This scheme offers a cash award and security products to community projects. Since Covid-19, the scheme has changed its terms to focus purely on providing free security kit to communities who require extra security and have limited funds to meet these needs.
To achieve this and optimise the number of communities supported, the scheme now provides successful applicants with the option of choosing one of five standard security kits worth an average of £150 each. These security kits represent the most frequently requested items featured in the over 60 applications received under the new COVID-19 conditions. Special security kits will still be created for applications that identify specific requirements not covered by these kits.
