Preventing hate crime: funding for community projects

There is currently a Home Office fund open with a focus on preventing hate crime through the delivery of community projects. The fund’s aim is to work with affected communities to fund the development of partnership projects that:

  • Prevent hate crime
  • Respond to hate crime in our communities
  • Increase the reporting of hate crime
  • Improve support for the victims of hate crime
  • Build our understanding of hate crime

The Home Office is seeking to fund projects up to £50,000. Projects have to be delivered by June 2018, with all invoices submitted by 31 March 2018. It is expected that the Home Office will fund up to 8 projects, but reserve the right to vary the number of projects funded depending on the budgets available.

The following organisations are eligible to apply:

  • Any registered English or Welsh charities
  • Any charitable incorporated organisation in England or Wales
  • Companies limited by guarantee
  • Not for profit registered community interest companies
  • Constituted community and voluntary community sector groups
  • 3rd sector/public sector partnerships (providing the lead organisation bidding for funding is not a public sector or local government body)

Application forms and more details guidance notes can be found here.
