Today the government announced the investment of an extra £150 million for the Safer Streets Fund – helping to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour as we build back safer.
- Our local communities are the beating hearts of the United Kingdom – we want our streets to be safe for everyone to go about their daily lives without fear inflicted on them by criminals.
- That is why, in round four of our Safer Streets Fund, we are making an extra £150 million available across England and Wales to areas most affected by crime. This latest round of funding targets neighbourhood crime, violence against women and girls, and – for the first time – anti-social behaviour.
- This will help to prevent potential perpetrators committing crimes in the first place, improving the safety and safety of our streets and helping our communities to flourish as we build back safer.
