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.

The Commissioner has established two funds to make communities safer, the Safer Communities Fund and the Supporting Communities Small Grants Fund.


Safer Communities Fund

The Safer Communities Fund grants round has now closed. Submitted applications will now be reviewed and assessed and the Commissioner is hoping to let people know the outcome of their applications at the start of February 2019.

If you have any queries regarding the grants round please don’t hesitate to contact the Commissioning Team at
