BOXING EQUIPMENT – PBNI GRANT AID 2020

The aim of the Probation Board for Northern Ireland is Changing Lives for Safer Communities and to that end the Board seeks to reduce offending; improve the rehabilitation of its service users; and thereby enhance community and personal safety. In consequence of those objectives, PBNI now invites applications from boxing clubs to provide basic boxing training kit/equipment for PBNI service users.

It is recognised that the discipline required within boxing can have multiple positive benefits, relating to health and fitness, anger management, a sense of belonging and a sense of achievement. As such, the services offered by boxing clubs can contribute to rehabilitation of people who have appeared before the Courts and charged with criminal offences.

That is why PBNI is now offering funding to a limited number of boxing clubs, subject to available resources, for the provision of basic kit/equipment for individuals under PBNI statutory supervision. To participate in this grant process, boxing clubs must have in place and be compliant with statutory safeguarding policies and procedures.

Completed application forms must be submitted electronically to the Community Grants section: CD@probation-ni.gov.uk

CLOSING TIME AND DATE FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS IS 4.00 PM ON MONDAY 17th FEBRUARY 2020

COMMUNITY SERVICE  & SUPERVISED ACTIVITY ORDER WORK PLACEMENTS – GRANT AID 2020 – 2021

PBNI has responsibility for securing local placements for individuals who are subject to Community Service / Supervised Activity Orders imposed by the Courts.

To fulfil the obligations of these Orders many of the people to which they are subject complete unpaid work placements within their local communities. PBNI invites applications from organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector to provide placements in the community. Successful applicants will be required to provide meaningful work and effective supervision of people subject to any such Court Orders. They will also be required to maintain records of work to provide evidence towards the achievement of positive outcomes for participants.

At the time of publication there is no agreed budget for Probation Board for Northern Ireland for financial year 2020 – 2021. Decisions on number and monetary value of the grant allocation will be based on the number of suitable applications, available placements and the final 2020 – 2021 budget settlement to meet our operational requirements across Northern Ireland.

Further information and application forms may be obtained via the PBNI Website, www.pbni.org.uk or by e-mailing the Community Grants Section cd@probation-ni.gov.uk.
