Does your organisation support people who may need some extra help over Christmas?

The Portsmouth Lottery Small Grants fund will be holding a targeted funding round in November with a focus on groups and people who may need particular support over the Christmas or winter period.

The Lottery Panel are looking to support organisations who provide support in the following areas:

  • Debt and money advice
  • Food banks
  • Older people
  • Homelessness
  • Loneliness


The grant funding should build on work you are already doing with these groups, to enable you to reach more people or provide additional help and support.

You can apply for up to £1,000 of funding for your project or service.

Your activity or service should take place in Portsmouth, or directly benefit Portsmouth residents.

The closing date for applications for this additional targeted round of funding is Friday 25 October - the panel will be meeting in November so that funding can be distributed before Christmas.
