The High Sheriff’s Fund makes grants to support young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who face a range of challenges or disadvantage including; poor mental health, bereavement, disability, long term illness, social isolation, substance misuse.

Caroline Bewes is serving as High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire for 2021/22. As High Sheriff, a particular theme for Caroline will be to support and encourage those involved in crime prevention with a focus on supporting young people throughout Cambridgeshire. She will also seek to support the judiciary, the police and the prison services, and looks forward to engaging with the voluntary sector through the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.

As part of our fundraising drive, Caroline has set herself the challenge of a parachute jump on 10th October. Caroline hasn’t experienced this before and although looking forward to it, your generous support will be a huge motivation in stepping out of the plane! If you would like to make a donation, please visit the JustGiving page here.

Any donations will go towards providing opportunities for young people to learn new skills, develop their character and confidence, and to thrive and fulfil their potential. This may include projects that improve community safety and prevent crime or anti-social behaviour.

The High Sheriff Fund will open for applications from groups from Tuesday 2nd November 2021. To find out more about the fund, please visit the fund page here.

Thank you for your support.
