Funding opportunities

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 Police and Crime Commissioner is pleased to announce the launch of a new funding round for 2019/20 to support victims and reduce offending. We are looking for new, innovative and exciting approaches, as well as approaches that have been proven to work. Applications are welcomed for funding between £500 and £50,000 and can be submitted between today, Monday 8 October and Thursday 8 November at 12:00.

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 Funding 2019/20’. 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.

We look forward to your applications and if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact the Commissioning Team at opcc.commissioning@hampshire.pnn.police.uk
