Stronger Safer Communities Reserve

The Stronger Safer Communities Reserve fund is a Fire Authority scheme which reinvests money into local communities to support our work to prevent emergencies. The money has been set aside from the Authority’s reserves.

Applications were opened earlier this year for the third round of the Stronger Safer Communities Reserve (SSCR), with a fund amount of £750,000 and with bids welcomed between £5,000 to £100,000.

We received a total of 48 applications by the closing date of 30 September.

A rigorous assessment programme then began with 16 succuessful projects being choosen.

We have already delivered two rounds of successful projects through this scheme, benefiting more than 40 projects with charities and community groups able to bid for sums ranging from £5,000 to £150,000.
