Dear Community Stakeholders

The Outreach Team would like to offer you the opportunity to apply for funding, which has been made available to support the Mayor’s Action Plan for police officer recruitment; and underpins the MPS drive to build a police service that better represents and understands the communities it serves.

The creation of a Community Outreach Fund is looking to support community led groups, charities and external partners, with a particular focus on those from the black community; by offering the opportunity to bid for grant funding in the development of initiatives; which will directly support the MPS in attracting more females and people from underrepresented groups, with a specific focus upon the black community, where confidence in policing is low.

We would like to offer external organisations and businesses with previous experience of delivering engagement activities to provide a proposal of an initiative which will help deliver the objectives of the MPS Attraction Strategy.

Further details on the funding and how to apply can be found in the prospectus attached, additionally we will be holding a series of online seminars to provide further information and answer any questions you may have. The dates of the seminars have been attached for your information.

It is encouraged you consider the funding opportunity and share with others who you believe can support the MPS drive to build a police service that better represents and understands the communities it serves.

The deadline for the next application submission is the 29th April 2022.

Kind regards

Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe

Power to Change follows the lives of ordinary Londoners against the backdrop of loss and violence. Their journeys intertwine as they learn how to move beyond the past with inner strength, circumspection and wisdom. Info about future screenings here:

Shocking stories, brilliant video, this is moving and I feel for you all there. Power is a key word, you need more power to change, take every bit you can because those in power want to hold it for themselves.
Share your stories as much as you can. It's thanks to my friend Wallee Mcdonnell that I saw this, he shared it with me. I shall share it.
There's a lovely saying about the difference between power and influence. With power, the more you share, the less you have. With influence, the more you share, the more you have! Let's do it.
