The Community Safety Innovation Fund:

  • ensures that the most appropriate proposals to improve community safety will access the funding they need
  • encourages the development of innovative ways in which to improve community safety from those people who best understand local community safety needs
  • allows best practice on community safety and youth justice to be shared with other partnerships and communities nationally as new proposals are developed
  • reflects and highlights the success of An Garda Síochána and the Criminal Assets Bureau in seizing the proceeds from criminal activity

This could include activities intended to:

  • support the creation of safe and resilient communities
  • reduce reoffending
  • divert vulnerable individuals away from engagement in criminal behaviour
