About Us



HIVE Portsmouth is a strategic partnership in Portsmouth consisting of a representative group of the voluntary and community sector, NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group and Portsmouth City Council.

We work with local people, groups and organisations in a way that recognises and nurtures the strengths of individuals, families and communities and helps to build independence and self-reliance as an alternative to a reliance on traditional services.

We connect people and organisations to share, support and learn in order to meet the needs of individuals and are committed to working together with the objective of building a happier, healthier and more connected city.

HIVE Portsmouth is:


A commitment

to working differently and being the best we can be.

A cooperative

of people and organisations working together to improve the health and well-being of the people of Portsmouth.

A presence

starting with the Central Library, we’re developing a physical front door where everyone is welcome and we plan to roll out similar locations across the city.
