Police Property Act Fund (PPAF)

Supporting local projects undertaken by voluntary/charitable organisations that solely benefit the communities of Sussex.

The Police Property Act Fund is made up of monies received by the police from the sale of found property and from property confiscated by order of court and then sold. The main aim of the fund is to support local projects undertaken by voluntary/charitable organisations that solely benefit the communities of Sussex.

We will consider any applications from voluntary and charitable organisations and community groups within Sussex. A number of criteria must be met in order for a successful application to be made.

  • Each application needs to be supported by a Sussex Police officer or member of staff who has knowledge of the charity or organisation.
  • A maximum amount of £500 can be applied for by each organisation or charity.
  • An application will not be considered if a previous donation from us has been made within the past three years.
  • The decision to make a donation and the amount donated will depend on the number of applications being considered at any one time and the amount that is available in the fund at the time of the application.

Should you wish an organisation or group that you are involved in to be considered for funding please contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team. They will be able to recommend you for funding using the application form.
