Apply for the Community Fund

Launched in May 2013, Julia's Community Fund is specifically for local organisations, groups or individuals who need money to help fund a new community safety project or scheme.

The fund is only available for new projects led by people based or operating solely or mainly within North Yorkshire and the City of York.

So far Julia has awarded just under £1m to support more than 100 local projects, all of whom are helping to make their communities safer.

Funds from £500 up to £20,000 can be awarded for specific projects that support communities within North Yorkshire to “Be Safe and Feel Safe”, including:

  • Diversionary activities for children and young people
  • Promoting safety and reducing the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Support for victims
  • Improving community cohesion
  • Preventing crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Supporting the purchase of specific pieces of equipment in key community locations
