Update on round 3 of Fire Authority funding

Work has been taking place around round three of the Fire Authority’s Stronger Safer Communities Reserve.

The latest funding will be allocated for projects which meet specific criteria, which include tackling water safety, arson and road traffic collisions. Other key priorities include working with those with mental health issues, people from excluded groups including BAME and faith communities and health and social care issues.

The timeline for the allocation of the funding is as follows:

Stage 1             Complete 29 September

Applicants submitted an Expression of Interest detailing the proposal for their project. We received a total of 48 applications into Round 3 of the fund.

Stage 2             Complete 10 November

Applications initially went through 2 days of officer review and sift. Projects were assessed in line with the assessment process provided within the information packs. The scoring matrix and information was then provided to the Assessment Board on the 10th November for evaluation, selection, and recommendations to the full Fire Authority.

Stage 3

Recommendations will be made to the Fire Authority for approval. This is expected to take place on the 27 November.

Stage 4

Successful projects will be notified during the week commencing 27 November and invited to an Induction Day with SYFR during December. Date currently scheduled for the 11 December.

Stage 5

Successful projects start 8 January 2018.
