Councillor Liz Fairhurst said: ‘The benefit of funding organisations in this way is that their actions are often focussed towards early intervention and prevention activities, and that the services they provide are in the right place at the right time.’

Good Neighbours Support Service and Carers Together lead the organisations which will benefit from the grants.

The Solent Communities Grant Programme has also received a financial boost.
