Community Programmes

With these Programmes we’re supporting the people of Portsmouth, and encouraging the people of Portsmouth to support the city.

With the Covid-19 lockdown hitting in mid-March, we unfortunately had to suspend our programmes and plans. We are now working towards getting these programmes safely up and running again, and they will be added below as they restart.

Care Leavers Programme

This Programme provides support for young people after leaving care, and to prepare those still in the care system for their next steps, by providing mentors and role models.

Portsmouth Ambassadors

The Portsmouth Ambassadors programme aims to engage the local community and businesses to drive passion for the city, recruiting Ambassadors to carry the message.
