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.


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.

The Fund is currently open until close of play Friday 14 August – find out more and apply 


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.
