Portsmouth City Community
The Portsmouth City Community Fund was established by Portsmouth City Council from a number of charitable trusts. The fund supports a wide range of beneficiaries including young people, older people, health & disability, medical research and general community projects. The fund achieved this through supporting projects run by voluntary groups, providing hardship funds for people in crisis and making awards to organisations specified in its original objects. The criteria below relates to the funds ring fenced for voluntary community group projects.
The priority of these funds are for Portsmouth City residents. There is a small amount available for applications which demonstrate disadvantage and need in the greater Portsmouth area.
- Registered Charities can apply for up to £5,000
- Unregistered community/voluntary groups can apply for £500
- The fund wishes to support 30% or more of a project; therefore no project above £17,000 total cost should be submitted.
