Launching Community Fund
Groups in London can look forward to the launch of a community fund to support local anti-knife projects in London. The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) in London has announced that they will make the details available ‘shortly’. Although the funds are separate, the Home Office and MOPAC will share information on bids where relevant.
