SY Fire & Rescue Authority has set aside a reserve budget to provide funding to partner organisations for projects which support South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue’s community safety objectives. In round one in 2014, the Authority awarded a total of over £500,000 to 19 different bidding organisations.

Applications for round 2 of this fund will be invited in the coming weeks. The Authority will aim to target funding at projects that it feels will have the biggest impact on reducing fires and other emergencies across South Yorkshire, or supporting the Fire Service’s wider objectives of directly contributing to improved health and social outcomes across the county.
