POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER Christopher Salmon has launched a scheme to save lives across Dyfed-Powys.

He wants to hear from organisations with great ideas on keeping road users safe across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys.

The best proposals will get a share of £300,000 to develop and run their schemes.

Mr Salmon said: “Too many people die or are seriously hurt on our roads; I want to change that.

“My Roads to Safety scheme will see innovative and exciting new road safety projects improve the lives of our communities and their road users.”

The fund will improve the safety of road users in Dyfed-Powys and reduce the number of road casualties across our communities. The Commissioner will make grants to public sector, police force, private sector, voluntary or community organisations and encourages organisations to work together.

A separate smaller budget of £35,000 is earmarked to look at specific research between academic institutions and partners, with a focus around emerging trends affecting road safety.

Mr Salmon aims to support projects that show a demonstration of innovation in building the research evidence base and applying it through knowledge exchange across all levels of road safety.

Applicants can apply for funding now until September 8.
