Apply for funding

Grants available from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton.

The Police and Crime Commissioner, Michael Lane, has an ambition, through his Commissioning and Partnerships Team, to reduce offending and support victims, enabling people to realise their life potential without being drawn into the Criminal Justice System.

The Commissioner has pledged to secure services that empower partners and potential partners through regular opportunities to bid for grant funding for projects and contracts. He is inviting organisations to tell him how they can work with him to achieve his vision and make your communities safer through looking for new and exciting approaches, whilst still supporting those ideas that have been proven to work.

 

Extraordinary Funding for Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Support Services Grants

On 2 May 2020, the Government announced a package of £76m extra funding to support victims and survivors of Domestic Abuse, Sexual Violence, vulnerable children and their families, as well as victims of modern slavery, during the COVID-19 emergency pandemic. Of this £76m funding package, £25m is being administered by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and distributed via Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to support victims and survivors of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence.

Hampshire PCC area’s potential pot has just been announced and is as follows:

  • £337,000 for Domestic Abuse services provided by organisations already commissioned by the PCC.
  • £168,500 for Domestic Abuse services provided by organisations not currently commissioned by the PCC
  • £168,500 for Sexual Violence services provided by both organisations that are commissioned and those currently not commissioned by the PCC

The MOJ have made it clear that to be eligible for the funding, organisations must be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise, including companies limited by guarantee and community interest companies.

They must provide support services which have the purpose of helping victims of crime cope with the impacts of crime, and, as far as possible, recover from the harm they have experienced.

Further information on how to apply, including the grant criteria, details of the grant process, useful contact information and guidance for completing the form, can be found within the ‘Guide to applying for the Extraordinary funding for victims of Domestic and Sexual Abuse’. We will also require all applicants to complete a mandatory safeguarding checklist.

A pdf copy of the application form has been made available for applicants to view the questions before using the web based form. Please note this is for reference only.

The online application form must be used to submit applications. Please contact the commissioning team if you have any questions or concerns.

The deadline for applications has been extended to Friday 5 June at 13:00.

If you are not eligible to apply to this fund the PCC invites you to apply for his COVID-19 Response Fund.

 

COVID-19 Response Fund

We are currently facing unprecedented and dynamically changing times. We need to work together to respond to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. We are now in a position to publish the next phase of the Commissioner’s plan to support victims of crime and the most vulnerable in our communities. The Commissioner is inviting organisations to apply for funding up to £10,000 in order to secure the provision of services that will directly address emerging issues and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for victims of crime, those individuals who cause harm and the most vulnerable in
our communities.

Further information on how to apply, including the grant criteria, details of the grant process, useful contact information and guidance for completing the form, can be found within the ‘Guide to applying for the COVID-19 Response Fund’. We will also require all applicants to complete a mandatory safeguarding checklist.

COVID-19 Keeping Communities Safer fund

COVID-19 Keeping Communities Safer fund provides £500 grants that can be used to help people stay safe at this time. The fund is open to existing voluntary groups, informal community groups established in direct response to COVID-19, Parish and Town councils and schools. This fund is currently closed due to overwhelming demand. 

 

 

 

Safer Communities Fund

In light of the circumstances and developments around the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commissioner and his team have decided to postpone the opening of the next grants round until further notice.

The Commissioning and Partnerships Team have already written to existing grants recipients to assess their needs in this time of crisis. Further updates will be provided in the next couple of weeks as to how the OPCC plans to support the needs of partners and communities across Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton going forward.

The Police and Crime Commissioner is committed to doing all he can to support our partners who are delivering vital services to victims of crime and the most vulnerable in our communities.

Please contact the commissioning team if you have any questions or concerns.
