whO WE ARE
We are committed to building funds and distributing grants to support community projects delivered by local voluntary and community groups across Hampshire & Isle of Wight.
We have built an £11m endowment fund for the long term benefit of our communities, and we have distributed £7m in grants to support over 2,000 community projects across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Our grant-making programmes support community projects for all ages; those with disabilities; families in crisis; the homeless; those in poor health; people looking to get back into work; those seeking protection; looking to get healthier through sport, drama and singing; people who want to learn about the arts and local culture; those that are isolated or lonely; and local people struggling to cope with their lives.
We award grants to smaller, lesser known charities and community groups who offer the support, services and activities that can really make a difference to local people's lives. We are proud to have reached out to nearly 500,000 people living in our local communities.
