Support and Integration Fund

The Community Foundation for Calderdale has partnered with Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council (CMBC) to launch the Support and Integration Fund. The fund’s strong emphasis on social cohesion as a way to reduce inequalities meets both funders’ vision to deliver change and transformation in the coming years.

They are particularly interested in seeing locally-based community and faith organisations who may not currently support asylum seekers and refugees, but who would like to widen their offer to asylum seekers and refugees. This could be a safe, well-promoted local group for asylum seekers in need to contact, an offer of befriending, lunch clubs or coffee mornings, parent and child groups or to a local project to increase the community understanding and cohesion around asylum and migration issues. Grants of up to £5,000 are available.

In addition, they also have a grant of £50,000 available. The large grant is to support asylum seekers’ and refugees integration in Calderdale. This would include holding a caseload of people who may be in need of support as well as working with locally-based community and faith organisations to help build the integration support they are able to offer. Immigration advice would not be expected. Ideally, this post will be over a maximum of two years. A total of £50,000 is available to one organisation.

They are holding a launch event on November 28th for anyone interested to find out more.
