Round 4 (running across the 2022/23 and 23/24 financial years and worth £75 million) of the Safer Streets Fund will fund initiatives that will combine and expand previous focuses of the Safer Streets Fund and SWaN Fund through targeting neighbourhood crime, VAWG and anti-social behaviour, in areas across England and Wales disproportionately and persistently impacted by these crime types/issues.
