CLOSED: Portsmouth City Community Funds
Re-opening 2025

The aim of this grant programme is to fund community projects within Portsmouth that work to tackle poverty and increase health and wellbeing. The priority of these funds is for projects supporting Portsmouth City residents.


The Community Fund offers 12-month grants of £1,000 – £5,000 for nonprofit community organisations. The fund will only make grants to organisations based in AND supporting work within Portsmouth and immediately surrounding areas.  When applying for this fund, community organisations should consider how the project will help to ease poverty and/or increase wellbeing for participants. Your project can reach Portsmouth residents of all ages and fund work that is one to one (such as counselling) as well as work on a group basis.


There is a designated part of this fund (circa 20%) that is ringfenced for work with people who have a learning disability. Please make clear in your bid if your work is targeted at people with a learning disability.
