    Community groups and residents in Exeter can apply for grants to support initiatives to reduce crime in their neighbourhood.

    Community Sparks Fund Grants of between £200 and £1,000 are now available to tap into.

    The grants are being offered by Safer Central Exeter, of which Exeter City Council is an active partner, and InExeter, the city’s Business Improvement District (BID).

    The aim of the grants is encourage activities and projects that will prevent crime and enhance community life in central Exeter.

    The Fund will provide grants to residents, community groups, organisations, associations or businesses to enable them to take positive action and help prevent violence against women and girls in public spaces and reduces anti-social behaviour in the evening and night time.
