Award Secure Communities RBG
What does the Secure Communities Scheme offer?
  • An award of up to £1,000 / €1,000
  • Security products to  help secure and ensure a successful event

The Secure Communities Scheme aims to distribute up to £1,000 / €1,000 cash a month.  It also provides security advice to successful applicants.

Who can apply?

Any grassroots project or activity that is organised by and benefits the local community can apply.  Activities only have to meet simple criterion:  that they are organised by and support a local community.  That means any charity, social enterprise, not for profit and community venture can apply so long as the funds are spent locally.  Apply today.

What type of activity or project is relevant?

There are very few limitations, but the scheme prioritises grassroots organisations which are too small to attract typical sponsorship or funding support. The schemes that benefit most are those with a security aspect as well as a funding need, such as fetes, festivals and local shows. Any refurbishment, redecoration or maintenance projects that benefit local communities are relevant, including allotments, sports clubs, village halls, common land or community centres.  Community events are also eligible from school fund-raisers to food banks, breakfast clubs or tea dances, firework displays or fun-runs.

Why does the award include security products?

Burg-Wächter is a leading company providing locking products that keep people’s home, property, equipment and businesses safe and secure.  The company provides safes, post boxes, locks, cables and chains, alarms and smart security solutions. Behind the company’s promise ‘Always the Safe Choice’ is a commitment to help protect what is important to people.  Besides physical security, being part of an active and thriving community is a vital factor in helping people feel safe and secure.  Encouraging and protecting such communities is the principle behind the Burg-Wächter Secure Communities Scheme.

What type of security products are relevant?

It depends on the event or activity, which is why the Award includes advice on the right security kit to suit each applicant. Burg-Wächter typically receives requests for cash boxes, locking products like padlocks, cables and chains and digital door locks or KeyMinders alongside Wi-Fi cameras and alarms.
