The Building a Stronger Britain programme is part of the counter-extremism strategy which encourages partnership between the government and groups and communities who want to see extremism defeated. This programme aims to help to create more resilient communities, to support civil society and community organisations who stand up to extremism in all its forms and offer vulnerable individuals a positive alternative, regardless of race, faith, sexuality, age, and gender. Not-for profit organisations and charities can apply for in-kind support (such as social media training, technical assistance to help a group improve their website, or capacity building work to help a group protect more vulnerable individuals) and grant funding for specific programmes that deliver goals set out in the Counter Extremism Strategy.
Grants are offered in two ranges:
• £1,000 – £14,999
• £15,000 – £50,000.
The deadline for grants and combined in-kind/grant applications is 5pm on the 14th October 2016.
The deadline for in-kind support applications is 5pm on the 9th December 2016.
