Inspiring Confidence in Our Neighbourhood
The ICON Fund has been established to facilitate micro-projects aimed at improving the life, safety and security of the community. It supports the development of innovative ideas and strategies in the field of community based crime and violence prevention. Creative projects that strengthen community protective factors or assets through inspiring confidence, pride and self-esteem in young people are encouraged.
There are four types of projects that can be funded: Situational Crime Prevention, Community Action, Youth Development and Capacity Building.
School Based Violence Prevention Grant
Schools are a key socializing institution and have proven to be an appropriate environment for effective implementation of violence prevention programs by detecting early onset and development of aggressive, antisocial behavior and averting or delaying the initial occurrence of problems. Projects therefore will need to demonstrate how they are reaching at-risk children and youth (students) and their families.
