Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Grants and funding

The application process is currently closed.

Children and young people across Greater Manchester are set to benefit from a new £950,000 fund to raise their aspirations and improve their life opportunities.

The Police and Crime Commissioner’s Youth Aspiration Fund and Youth Aspiration Sustainability Fund will support work with vulnerable children and young people at risk of offending or who take part in risky behaviour.

Previous successful projects 

In 2014, Tony Lloyd launched the Youth Aspiration Fund, which resulted in over 30 innovative projects receiving a share of £600,000 to support Greater Manchester’s youngsters and give them the best start in life. A further £950,000 fund was made available in 2017.

In February 2016, he launched a £900,000 “community chest” made up of two new funds – the Neighbourhood Fund and Active Citizens’ Fund – as well as the existing Youth Aspiration Fund. These awards were made in May 2016.

In June 2016, he re-opened the Active Citizens’ Fund with a further £400,00 for community groups, and awards were made in December 2016.
