Small Grants available to tackle Hate Crime

02 September 2016

The Police and Crime Commissioner has launched a new Small Grants Award round, which is intended to support services and providers with a one off payment of up to £3,000.  The aim is to reduce offending or support victims of hate crime.  In particular, we would like to focus on projects that increase the reporting of hate crime, improve the identification of hate crime, reduce hate crime offending or improve support for victims of hate crime.

The small grants round will be run by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation on behalf of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Applications close on Friday 30 September 2016.
