Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

We recognise the incredible contribution and role our local charities, not-for-profit and voluntary sector organisations play in the local community. Thanks to the Portsmouth Lottery, we are able to offer one-off grants to local good causes through our small grants fund. Organisations can apply for up to £1,000.

The small grants funding panel meets four times a year to assess applications that will support activities and services in Portsmouth, or will directly benefit Portsmouth residents.

The grant could cover the purchase of needed equipment, or a specific project or activity. Before applying, read our funding policy guidelines and terms and conditions to make sure that you qualify for our small grant funding.
