There will be up to £1 million in total for the anti-knife crime Community Fund in 2018/19 and it will be launched later this spring. This was one of the commitments in the Serious Violence Strategy, launched on 9 April, which also said there would be a further round of the Community Fund in 2019/20.

This is in addition to the £765,000 awarded in December 2017 to community bids across the country.
