Small grants to help tackle hate crime in Hampshire


The Office of the Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner has launched a Small Grants Award round. It is intended to support services and providers with a one off payment of up to £3,000, with the aim of reducing offending or support victims of hate crime. In particular they would like to focus on projects that increase the reporting of hate crime, improve the identification of hate crime, reduce hate crime offending or improve support for victims of hate crime.

Examples of projects that could get funding include:

  • setting up of Third Party Reporting Centres
  • counselling or other support for victims of hate crime
  • informing the community about hate crime, its effects and how to report it
  • working with perpetrators of hate crime

The small grants round is being run by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation on behalf of the Police and Crime Commissioner. Applications have to be in by 30 September.
