SIA awards £17,600 from its grant for good causes to two youth enterprises


The Security Industry Authority (SIA) have announced the award of its 2022 to 2023 grant for good causes, with two youth enterprises receiving the prize fund.

The SIA’s grant for good causes is funded from ill-gotten cash (proceeds of crime) confiscated from individuals convicted of criminal offences within the private security industry.

The beneficiaries for the grants are Young Enterprise and 1000 Black Boys. The two enterprises have different roles, but are designed to improve the lives of children and young people.

The SIA’s grant for good causes’ panel granted:

Pete Easterbrook, Head of Criminal Enforcement and Chair of the SIA grants panel said:

“Put simply if people commit an offence(s) in the private security industry; the SIA will find them, prosecute them and where significant financial benefit has been reached by the offender, will use its financial investigation powers to pursue them for reparations under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA).

“In the 2022 to 2023 financial year we were awarded £17,599.16 confiscated from people who committed crimes in the private security industry. The grant for good causes demonstrates that crime really doesn’t pay. We are investing the money into two worthy causes who are committed to supporting young people.”

Organisations are eligible to apply if they are a registered charity or not for profit organisations and are able to clearly demonstrate the positive impact of the grant to public protection.
