Support currently on offer, or planned before March 2024, includes:

  • After school clubs and Saturday fun sessions with refreshments
  • Café vouchers (in libraries with cafes)
  • ChatAbout sessions
  • Multiply numeracy workshops
  • Period poverty stations in some libraries
  • Books and Brunch sessions (from October 2023)
  • Green and Thrifty Fortnight (February 2024)

Contact your local library for further information.

Current community grant recipients

Until the end of September 2024, Hampshire County Council, in line with the DWP Household Support Fund grant criteria, has made available £720,000 in community grants to enable organisations to support vulnerable residents with food and fuel poverty.

Updated details of support available in your neighbourhood through the community grants programme will be listed here as they become available – make sure to bookmark connect4communities.

Meanwhile, for information on previous older community projects we’ve supported, some of which may still be running, please see Our work so far. Contact them directly to find out more.
