Active Citizens Fund 2017/18

The Active Citizens Fund combines three previous streams of funding so that West Midlands Police will be better placed to engage with the public and encourage 'active citizenship'. This means that communities in the West Midlands will be actively involved in projects that will make a positive difference to themselves.

For more general information about the Active Citizens Fund, please contact the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands:
