The Safer Streets Fund will provide funding to areas of England and Wales that are disproportionately affected by acquisitive crimes, such as burglary and theft. The fund will provide areas with the resources to implement well evidenced crime prevention initiatives, such as street lighting and home security to help make areas safer and more secure.

We expect to launch the fund shortly and will publish details of timescales for bid assessment and approval at launch.
