The winner of the award will receive 300 to go towards further development of their project or, if it is an individual, to be spent in the field of Community Safety in their neighbourhood. Two runners up will receive 100 each.

  • Strong evidence of Community Involvement in the project.
  • Evaluation (This may include interviews with residents, reduction in crime or accidents etc).
  • Sustainability (Is the project self sustaining or does it require ongoing financial backing).
