Supporting communities fund

The supporting communities fund is a £1million grant fund launched by East Hampshire District Council in 2019, supporting community groups and organisations in the district.

Applying for community funding

The Supporting Communities Fund is now closed for the year and will reopen in Spring 2023.

Applications must be able to demonstrate how they will help the council support the wellbeing of residents, improve lives, and enhance access to support services for those who are vulnerable.

The council is aiming to achieve two outcomes using this fund;

  • supporting positive mental health in residents, in particular young people
  • reducing social isolation in residents, in particular older people
