Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton is about to launch a new funding round for 2018/19 and will be inviting organisations to bid for funding for new, innovative and exciting approaches, as well projects and services that have been proven to work. Funding will run for one year from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 and will support projects that support victims or reduce offending.
The grants round will open on the 2 October and run until 31 October at 16:00 and will be accepting applications between £500 and £50,000.
The Commissioner’s guide to applying for funding for 2018/19 which will help you with your application can be found here.

If you are interested in applying for funding of £500 and below the Commissioner also has established a Supporting Communities grant fund for applications up to a maximum of £500.
