South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service is calling on community and voluntary groups to bid for money to support its work in driving down incidents across the county.

The Service wants registered charities, community organisations and partner agencies to come forward and apply for grants from the Stronger Safer Communities Fund, which has been set aside from the Fire & Rescue Authority’s reserves.

Groups will be able to bid for as little as £5,000 or as much as £250,000 to support projects which reduce injuries, save lives and make South Yorkshire safer. Key objectives for the fund include prioritising the most vulnerable, collaboration and data sharing.

New and innovative project proposals are especially welcome and projects can run for up to two years. The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is 10 February 2014.
