We recognise the incredible contribution and role our local charities, not-for-profit and voluntary sector organisations play in the local community.

We are able to offer one-off grants to local good causes through our small grants fund. This is possible thanks to the Portsmouth Lottery.

Since 2017 the Portsmouth Lottery has awarded over £95,000 to Good Causes in the city.

The next round of the Portsmouth Lottery opened on the 1st October 2020.

  • 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  round of funding is Friday 6 November 2020 – 5pm

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 ensure that you qualify for our small grant funding.
