Are you considering organising an event? If so there may be some available assistance by way of help and advice plus a subsidy to offset the costs. This can come from either HPLS or the Southampton Police Trust Fund. To discuss which would be the best route to take please contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org .
HPLS will also consider helping towards the costs of events organised by a 'member of HPLS' and 'where the majority of attendees are members of HPLS' in which case we can also help with the promotion of such open invite events. Any HPLS subsidy should only benefit subscribing members and their partners or family, so this means that event access needs to have some control and any non-members attending should contribute an enhanced rate for attending or pay the standard rate. HPLS funding is generally not aimed at purely shift or department social functions, although we will consider any event being planned. See below.
Secondly, the Southampton Police Club Trust Fund will also consider subsidising your social event. Duplicate claims to HPLS and Trust Fund are not permitted.
The SPCTF was set up may years ago following the sale of the old Southampton Sports and Social Club building in order to assist police staff with supporting in a number of ways and their grants can benefit any beneficiary including non HPLS members.
