PCC DN - Home Office Grant: Serious and Organised Crime Community Coordinator (Western Balkans)

The Home Office provided funding to GMP via GMCA to undertake community-based work to prevent and safeguard against Western Balkan led criminality across Greater Manchester, implementing Prepare, Prevent and Protect objectives to tackle serious and organised crime. For 2023/24, this totals £130,000.

This project is part of two wider Home Office programmes – Serious and Organised Crime Community Coordinators, and the Western Balkans programme, which delivers both UK and origin country-based interventions to reduce offending, build community resilience and safeguard individuals and communities at risk of being drawn into or affected by serious and organised crime.

The total spend is split between three key budget lines, with the community coordinator staff allocating project spend to the most appropriate activity locally to meet the stated project objectives.
