Portsmouth Lottery - Small grants fund

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 new Portsmouth Lottery, we are now able to offer one-off grants of up to £2,000 to local good causes through our small grants fund.

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

Typical examples of expenditure could cover the purchase of needed equipment, a specific project or activity. Before applying, please read our funding policy guidelines and terms and conditions documents (below) to ensure you qualify for our small grant funding.
