Grants to Install Security Measures for Places of Worship Experiencing Hate Crime

Grants to Install Security Measures for Places of Worship Experiencing Hate Crime

The UK Government is making funding available to reduce the risk and impact of hate crime at places of worship and associated faith community centres in England and Wales.

The Places of Worship Protective Security Funding Scheme will award funding to individual places of worship of all faiths, apart from the Jewish community (that have access to a separate scheme), for the free installation of up to three protective security measures and improvements.

The types of places of worship that can apply under the scheme include (but are not limited to):

  • churches
  • gurdwaras
  • mosques
  • temples

associated faith community centres (for example, a community centre where regular worship takes place that is near a place of worship and run by that place of worship)

This could include CCTV, fencing, lighting and intruder alarms etc. Applicants will need to demonstrate their vulnerability to and experience of hate crimes and/or hate incidents. Funding will also be available for some security guarding services at Muslim places of worship.

The deadline for applications is 23.59 on the 14th of July 2022.
