The PCC funding meeting considered four applications which were not supported following the funding approvals meeting on 3 May 2017.
The first application was a request for funding for the purchase of IT equipment from a Community Association. This was declined as it was felt there wasn’t a demand for this equipment. A library was close by in the area where computers could be accessed.
The second application was from a national charity that works with young people to address local issues within their communities based on the PCC’s objectives. This was not supported as the four local authorities within Cleveland are now responsible for youth diversion projects.
The third request was from a local organisation that helps people in supported house. The organisation had asked for funding to build an in house gym. This request was declined due to there being an insufficient direct outcome relating to any of the five PCC priorities. The organisation was encouraged to apply in the future for a project/initiative which would better support the individuals at the Centre.
The fourth application was from a local sports club who had requested funding for CCTV equipment and a security gate. This application was declined, however, details of the Crime Prevention Officers were passed on so crime prevention advice could be given.
