We want to work with Fratton residents and local organisations to start spending our funding on making things happen in Fratton. Some projects will be run by us, and others will be run together with other groups and organisations. To make our funding go further, we’ll also be using it to attract more grants as match funding.

We are working with local businesses to make Fratton Road & the surrounding area look better, and we are organising large annual events for residents to take part in.
We are looking at how we can improve facilities at Kingston Rec, St Mary’s Churchyard & other green spaces, with projects such as a new climbing wall, splash pool and a green gym.
We are working to link in people to a new Community Resource map, so everybody knows what’s available locally. We organise arts and culture projects to help build Fratton’s community spirit, and we are also looking at how we might bring together lots of local services into a new Community Hub.
We are looking at how we can help Fratton residents to live healthier lives and we are working with groups that put on projects to build more community spirit in Fratton.
We’ve set up a Community Grants pot of £10,000 a year, which local people and groups can apply to for new projects that will benefit Fratton residents.
